Urban Resilience is



The Resilience Academy aims to equip young people with the tools, knowledge, and skills to address the world’s most pressing urban challenges and ensure resilient urban development.

Internship Program

RA Student Internship Program engages Tanzanian university students to 8-week trainings with the industry. It engages students and community members in digital geospatial data collection to narrow the data gap for informed resilience planning and management in cities.

Open e-learning materials

RA develops, gathers and shares educational materials for e-learning of practical data and analysis skills. These materials are used in the university degree programs as learning materials, but they ere open for anyone to use for self-studying

Climate Risk Database (CRD)

RA manages, stores, and shares digital geospatial data sets through the Climate Risk Database (CRD), which is developed on Geonode. All data sets collected by student interns and TURP stakeholders are stored in CRD.

Research and Innovation Activities

Research activities are built on novel data, technology and application ideas around urban resilience. RA runs a MSc student supervision program, and cooperates with international researchers and universities to advance state-of-art research related to disaster risk management.
