Making cities resilience report 2012: My city is getting ready! A global snapshot of how local governments reduce disaster risk   7.5 Mb  UNISDR, September 2012

The "Making Cities Resilient" campaign addresses issues of local governance and urban risk while drawing upon previous ISDR Campaigns on safer schools and hospitals, as well as on the sustainable urbanizations principles developed in the UN-Habitat World Urban Campaign 2009-2013. With the support and recommendation by many partners and participants, and a Mayor’s statement made during the 2011 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction, the "Making Cities Resilient" campaign will continue to run at least until 2015.

Understanding the nature and scale of urban risk in low and middle income countries and its implications for humanitarian preparedness, planning and response   896.2 kb  David Dodman & al., International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), 2012
This synthesis review was commissioned by DFID in order to review the quality of the evidence base and to outline knowledge gaps about the nature and scale of urban risk in low- and middle-income countries; and to assess the policy implications of this for humanitarian preparedness, planning and response. It does so by analysing a wide range of academic and policy literature and drawing on a number of interviews with key informants in the field.
