"[T]hrough the depth of the essays collected within it, The Resilient City far surpasses previous edited volumes on urban reconstruction."--H-NET "Cities, like people, often show their deepest character under terrifying stress.

Urban Climate Change Resilience The concept of resilience has been useful in addressing climate risk and unexpected events, and in enhancing eff orts to survive and thrive in the context of climate change.1 Urban climate change resilience (UCCR) embraces climate change adaptation, mitigation actions, and disaster .   The book helps local governments create training, capacity building, and capital investment programs for building sustainable, resilient communities.
