Resilient Cities protect and enhance their natural and urban resources while managing the impact of climate change and population growth. This also translates to promoting the local economy, resources and products. Our cities' infrastructure, transport, construction, and communication systems must evolve to become more adept at being energy efficient and carbon neutral, to reduce the impact of climate change, adverse weather conditions and rising sea levels.
