Resilient Cities 2012: 3rd Global Forum on Urban Resilience and Adaptation

Resilient Cities 2012: 3rd World Congress on Cities and Adaptation to Climate Change will focus on the following themes: urban risk and the issue of urban infrastructure as a key element in building resilient cities; resilient integrated urban design - how to optimally relate the water, food security and biodiversity sectors to build a resilient city; resilient urban renewable energy - how to ensure a clear link between the local renewables agenda and energy security and safety of urban areas; resilient urban logistics - a showcase of successful examples in ecomobility (moving people) and ecologistics (moving goods); and financing the resilient city - how climate financing for adaptation can be mobilized, leveraged and innovated for the local level. Resilient Cities 2012 will also host a session on global sustainable infrastructure finance in partnership with Global Energy Basel. Joan Clos, UN-HABITAT's Executive Director, is the patron of Resilient Cities 2011 and 2012.
