CITYNET, a longstanding partner of UNISDR’s ‘Making Cities Resilient’ Campaign, joined a global assembly of local governments, disaster management agencies and capacity development service providers to better understand and enact the campaign’s ‘Ten Essentials’ of Disaster Risk Reduction and Management. This three day collaborative learning initiative challenged participants (including CITYNET member cities Makati, Muntinlupa, Seoul and Incheon) to plan new city-level DRR objectives and activities. CITYNET will work with UNISDR to further refine the campaign’s tools and make them even more relevant and accessible to CITYNET members.

Around the world, cities are facing #environmentalhazards like extreme #heat, #landslides, #pollution, and #flooding. To enhance #resilience to #climatechange impacts, cities must monitor and address these hazards. Earth observations can help cities understand and enhance urban resilience and make better decisions for planning, urban #greening, monitoring, and more.

This 3-part, introductory webinar series will provide an overview of the Earth Observations Toolkit for Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements, an online knowledge resource that shares ready-to-use Earth observation data sets and tools. These resources can be applied in policy areas that are important to resilient and sustainable cities. Such areas include sustainable urban planning, adequate #housing, access to #publictransport, and access to public spaces.
