The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) and its partners are working towards sustainable urbanization by taking proactive actions. The Making Cities Resilient Campaign - launched in May, 2010 - addresses issues of local governance and urban risk. The Campaign is led by the UNDRR but is self-motivating, partnership and city-driven with an aim to raise the profile of resilience and disaster risk reduction among local governments and urban communities worldwide.
- Know More: Raise awareness of citizens and governments at all levels of the benefits of reducing urban risks.
- Invest Wisely: Identify budget allocations within local government funding plans to invest in disaster risk reduction activities.
- Build more safely: Include disaster risk reduction on participatory urban development planning processes and protect critical infrastructure.
