What Local Government

Cities must develop approaches and means to be more resilient; whether it is to climate change and also other disasters. Measures should be taken to reverse global climate change and avert this problem, because there will be adverse consequences for many people. In doing so, the region’s policymakers should seek to develop holistic and inclusive strategies to make their cities more resilient to future shocks and disasters, including those driven by urban climate change. There must be greater action taken to lessen the region’s urban vulnerability to disasters and the impacts of climate change by strengthening the capacity of cities’ individuals, communities, institutions, businesses, and systems to survive, adapt, and thrive in the face of stress and shocks.
