Event Details

How can vulnerable neighbourhoods in fast-growing cities become more resilient to disasters and climate change?

While urbanisation brings unprecedented social and economic opportunity, it also increases the threat of disasters, with greater concentrations of people living in dangerous places, such as those living in coastal areas, on land that floods, or on marginalised land.

Asia Pacific is one of the world’s fastest urbanising regions. It is also home to the largest number of people living in low-income settlements. The region is susceptible to a wide range of natural hazards, including flood, windstorms, earthquake, volcano, tsunami and landslide. Climate change is also expected to contribute to sea level rise, stronger windstorms and higher temperatures, increasing urban risk and exacerbating migration. 

To address this, Sustainable Development Goal 11 has identified resilience as a key approach for creating inclusive, safe and sustainable cities.

This two-day conference invites practitioners, researchers and decision-makers from all disciplines to present, discuss, debate and recommend realisable social, physical, political and economic measures that build resilience in the Asia Pacific region. The guiding question is, how can vulnerable, low-income neighbourhoods in fast-growing cities in the Asia Pacific region become more resilient to disasters and climate change?

The conference will address four key themes and their interconnectedness.

1. Innovation

2. Information

3. Infrastructure

4. Institutions
