UN-Habitat's Trends in Urban Resilience 2017 flagship publication aims to give a general overview on the field of Urban Resilience, and build bridges between research and practice going from the theoretical debate to real case studies.
The publication's purpose is to account for this unprecedented global momentum for resilience-building from urban standpoint: inquiring the trends that drive the theory, investigating how these were gradually incorporated in development agendas, mapping the diverse landscape of actors involved, and analyzing how this perspective shift can be translated into forward-looking urban policies and practices.
The session will introduce the publication and allow a discussion with academia and key players on urban resilience at international level.
In addition, during the event, UN-Habitat will launch a call for contributions to the Trends in Urban Resilience 2019.
