The purpose of this guidebook is to illustrate how cities everywhere – from Eastern and Southern Africa to Western Europe, to Southeast Asia, to the Southern United States – are responding to current and future challenges by thinking differently about how to strategically design, plan, and manage for resilience. The case studies presented here highlight the experiences, lessons learnt, and stories of resilience building from the per- spective of local authorities and communities actively engaged in the programmes and ini- tiatives led by the Medellín Collaboration on Urban Resilience (MCUR).
