Introduction to a New Approach to Urban Resilience

ISET has developed and refined an approach for building urban resilience based on engagement with over a dozen cities internationally and over more than a decade’s experience. This report presents this approach, discusses the importance of systems thinking, building relationships, and ongoing learning to successful application, and introduces tools and techniques for applying this approach to assessing vulnerability and building resilience.
