World Bank – Building Urban Resilience by Empowering Communities
By: The world bank
In a rapidly urbanizing world, cities are increasingly prone to natural hazards and climate shocks.
The Habitat III conference is an opportunity for national and city leaders to discuss ways to make cities and communities more resilient to these hazards and shocks.
One way that the World Bank has helped is through community-driven development (CDD), an approach that gives control over planning decisions and investment resources to community groups and local governments.
