GFA NEWSLETTER 03//2020: RESILIENT CITIES ARE LIVEABLE CITIES
We live in the century of cities. An estimated 68% of the global population will live in cities by 2050 while 70% of the needed urban infrastructure is yet to be built. Hence, urban areas face multi-dimensional challenges that can partly be attributed to climate change, an economic divide and social inequalities. Covid-19 has further aggravated these problems. This newsletter presents GFA’s integrated approach towards urban resilience and discusses tools that support local governments in facing future shocks and stresses. GFA believes that no single action makes a city resilient but works across sector boundaries to develop and promote adequate solutions.
