The Urban Resilience Summit: Innovation, Investment, Collaboration

In an increasingly fast-changing and interconnected world, fostering resilience to withstand unexpected shocks is becoming more important. The effects of the financial crisis in 2008 still linger today. More recently, natural disasters of historic proportions in Asia and the re-emergence of geopolitical turmoil in Eastern Europe and the Middle East highlight the need for more resilient societies.
