"It is my hope that Resilient Cities 2019 will encourage governments and local authorities to act now on developing national and local disaster risk reduction strategies by 2020."

"What determines the resilience of a city after a crisis is how well the city works before the crisis. ICLEI's Resilient Cities Congress provides insights and examples to help our cities achieve local socioeconomic well-being and global ecological health, while preparing them to face natural and man-made threats."

David Jácome Polit, Chief Resilience Officer, Quito, Ecuador
Special Element: CiBiX Resilience Workshops
ICLEI CiBiX City-Business Collaboration Accelerator provides an open platform for cities and businesses to explore partnership needs, collaboration barriers and new solutions to pressing challenges facing local governments.
Currently leading Sweden’s renewable energy transition, Malmö is now facing urgent challenges related to energy security and resilience. Energy demand has surged due to urban development and the electrification of heating and transport. Due to this, energy shortfall risks have been intensifying.

Milan is looking to tackle challenges surrounding disaster management. In particular, the coordination of multiple stakeholders and all the relevant data involved at the different response stages. Future plans are focused on finding new partnerships and digital tools to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of disaster and emergency preparedness and response.

Reality Check Denver-Baltimore
Join the reality check workshop addressing how food waste can help cities stabilize municipal waste management costs and meet sustainability goals.

Baltimore and Denver are undertaking actions towards becoming more sustainable and resilient by including food systems as a critical component of urban planning for climate resilience. Both cities are adopting an adaptation strategy to prevent food from going to waste, rescue surplus food and recycle food scraps.

Climate Risk Transfer Solutions for Cities
Climate change is aggravating the intensity and frequency of natural disaster worldwide. Is your city ready to cope with the risk? Can that risk be transferred?

The Integrated climate risk management (ICRM) is a holistic risk management framework proposed by GIZ, which incorporates risk transfer solutions into disaster risk management and climate adaptation efforts. City managers are able to access timely finance after a disastrous event, and reduce dependence on international emergency funds, enabling quick action.
