Welcome to the online course on "Fundamentals of Resilient Governance"

Is your city or region threatened by the consequences of climate change? Do you think your local government could be better prepared to face crises and conflicts? Have you heard about the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction?

Making cities and regions more resilient and safer is one of the main challenges for local and regional governments (LRGs) in the coming years. This online course is designed to support all relevant stakeholders at the local, regional, and national level, and provide them with knowledge, understanding, and basic tools to integrate disaster risk reduction (DRR) and resilience building into local public policies, strategies, and development plans.

  • How to identify available financing mechanisms and opportunities 
  • How to develop integral and inclusive DRR and resilience building strategies and action plans
