From 26 to 28 of November, participants discussed the importance of strengthening urban resilience in the face of extreme climate events, and how to better manage the risks (and opportunities) that a changing climate can bring. The event was organized by Connective Cities, with the support of the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ), Engagement-Global, the German Association of Cities, the Brazilian Front of Mayors (FNP), and UCLG Learning. Representatives from 17 cities and regions of Latin America and Germany were gathered in the city of Niteroi, Brazil, to exchange experiences and knowledge on the topic of climate resilience and urban development. The lessons learned by cities through their efforts to respond to and prevent emergencies, and mitigate and manage risk, is similar in many cities, and together make up a great source of learning and good practices.
