Financing the Resilient City: A demand driven approach to development, disaster risk reduction, and climate adaptation - An ICLEI White Paper, ICLEI Global Report
The white paper provides a methodological approach to resilience and argues for a shift, in both adaptation to climate change and disaster risk reduction, from a singular and specific focus on affected infrastructures and locations towards a more integrated focus on overall risks, development conditions, and local area performance. The report calls for:
Mainstreaming climate and disaster risk reduction to become factors in conventional planning processes, project design and development decision making.
Developing specialized financial instruments for the risk-oriented components of these projects that cannot be addressed via mainstreaming measures.
Building local institutional capacity to prepare, structure and manage large scale redevelopment.
