Preparing resilient cities

My list


Climate change is a global issue that is seeing no signs of backing down, with cities inevitably on the front lines of climate change’s growing risks and challenges. Recognizing this, this year’s World Cities Day (on Oct. 31) reflects on the theme of “Adapting Cities for Climate Resilience.”

Here in the Philippines, the urbanization rate has gone up to over 51 percent. However, resilience in the country’s cities vis-à-vis climate change still has a lot of catching up to do. Recent reports note that the Philippines can expect more intense typhoons, higher sea levels, and greater storm surges.
