China Resilient Cities Report
This Summary for Policymakers (SPMs) is based on the China Resilient Cities Report (2023). This report integrates the introduction to international and ICLEI experience of building resilient cities, analysis of practices conducted in Chinese cities, and exploration on how to build resilient cities in China with a focus on ‘climate resilience’. In partnership with United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) and other distinguished actors, during year 2019 to 2021, ICLEI East Asia Secretariat closely worked with four project cities in China, to implement a series of training workshops promoting the ‘Making Cities Resilient 2020’ Campaign (followed by the ‘Making Cities Resilient 2030’ initiative since 2021). Training workshops root in the practical work in China around urban disaster risk reduction and emergency management, covering topics like climate change, climate mitigation and adaptation, climate investment and financing, and Nature-based Solutions. For which, we hope to provide a systematic presentation of what resilient cities are, and to showcase best practices across the world. Via applying the tool ‘Disaster Resilience Scorecard’, we collaborated with cities to understand and reflect on their existing resilient cities practices, to navigate next steps. The China Resilient Cities Report (2023) is a contribution of ICLEI to Making Cities Resilient 2030 (MCR2030).
