According the World Bank, a resilient city is one that is prepared for existing and future impacts, thereby limiting their magnitude and severity. Resilient cities reduce vulnerability to extreme events and respond creatively to economic, social and environmental changes in order to increase their long-term sustainability.
It has been acknowledged that several factors will enable cities to become more resilient and motivate them on planning resilient cities.
These include strong political leadership and will, development of dedicated institutional setup, sustainability of institutional capacities and resources at local level, building multi-stakeholder partnership, ensure community participation, constructing or enhancing hazard mitigating infrastructure suit to local context, and establishment of education and awareness programs.
Furthermore, it was also identified the importance of strong supportive policies and sufficient financial commitments from the national governments.
International agencies can also play a supportive role in building partnerships and enhancing momentum for disaster risk reduction activities and sharing ideas on best practices.
