Resilient Asian Cities

Concerning the increasing development of urbanization and the emergence of climate and natural crises and challenges, as well as issues and problems of human origin in cities and urban settlements around the world, especially in Asia, the issue of strengthening infrastructures, systems, and services in the face of major crises and challenges in natural, political, economic and social dimensions is of particular importance and has been turned into one of the most challenging issues in the field of national and local governance and concerns of mayors and urban managers. The Resilience Committee of Asian Cities was established in 2018 based on topics raised and recommendations of the Gaziantep Summit and follows up the global indicators defined for this issue including justice in health, welfare and social and economic balance, infrastructure, environment, and integrated urban management. The Crisis Prevention and Management Organization of Tehran Municipality is responsible for administering this Committee.
