The Making Cities Sustainable and Resilient Action is led by UN-Habitat and UNISDR with the financial support of the European Commission. The Action supports national and local disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation, focusing on building local capacities in crisis-prone cities. This first report on the Action’s progress focuses on work done in Maputo and Honiara, and the initiation of pilot projects in other cities. It overviews the tools and methodologies implemented, as well as publicity received and partnerships made.
