URB-is welcomes and supports the City Resilience Profiling Programme of UN-HABITAT :
How resilient is your city?
Welcome to URB-is!
From Barcelona we launch this information spreading website related to the resilience of infrastructures. The target is to create an information exchange platform for those who are interested in developing a new concept of urbanism, capable of self-improving in order to cope with its vulnerabilities.
The current website is the first stage to a more ambitious project, the creation of a network of organizations that share an interest in resilience.
The second phase will develop a synergic environment that will allow cities, governments, universities, research centres, and private enterprise to share information and develop different aspects of resilience in the shape of projects, joint efforts, research, etc. Their common denominator is the necessity of current cities to reinvent themselves in order to resist the collapse of infrastructures and services supply facing detected risk situations.
This website is open to all people who wish to participate. For this reason, we offer here our contact page where you could send us your opinions and suggestions.
Your opinion is important to us! Please, help us improve!
