Our focus

Why Resilience?

Over the next 20 years, 95% of global urban growth will occur in developing and emerging countries.

This will dramatically increase the concentration of people and assets exposed to climate risk.

There is a need for improved action globally to identify, reduce, and respond to risk. 

This begins with education
