Now is the Time to Invest in Resilient Cities

In the last 30 years, floods, droughts, cyclones, earthquakes, and other natural disasters have killed an estimated 2.3 million people and caused 3.5 trillion dollars in economic damage, leaving affected areas devastated for years after a disaster occurs. Investing in climate and disaster resilience may seem like a high upfront expense, but the benefits clearly outweigh the costs. If we don’t invest in resilience now, vulnerable cities simply won’t survive.
