The new Guide on Connecting Green Recovery and Resilience in Cities – Resilient Cities Action Package 2021 (ReCAP21) outlines three key entry points for local governments to move towards an urban transformation and a resilient recovery process, which is also green in nature. Together, these entry points provide local governments with the practical support to identify comprehensive solutions that range from finance and physical interventions to cultural practices and governance arrangements that may contribute to achieving more resilient societies.


The guide [download] offers five practical tools for cities that cover topics from harmonising local government’s urban strategies to developing tailored risk assessments and climate-resilient interventions. It showcases practical examples of how multilevel governance can be fostered through the implementation of local dialogues in Rwanda and Bangladesh.


The guide also offers four case studies in which the resilience assessment tools have been implemented in different settings and urban contexts, as well as highlights six projects that were submitted to the Transformative Actions Program (TAP).
