Risk and Resilience in the Americas

Press this link to see the recording of the session.

A North – South perspective

Resilience affects all urban centers in the Americas, particularly those located in coastal areas. Best practices and strategies vary between countries and between varying states of economic and urban development. This session presents transformational cases of building urban, coastal resilience in the face of climate extremes e.g. heat stress and flooding, through the implementation of nature-based solutions.

This session is recommended for international resilience experts in the private, public, knowledge, and NGO sectors, as well as multilateral development banks, donors, and funders of resilience projects.
