About the hub

Urban resilience is the starting point for a sustainable world. We contribute to an inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable urban future, and change the paradigm of urbanization, by increasing the resilience of our cities.

We are UN-Habitat’s technical partners for urban resilience; we help cities increase their resilience by diagnosing the state of their urban system, driving actions, sharing and building knowledge and advocating on a global scale.
