Description:

During the 2016 Resilient Cities Conference, representatives of the Rockefeller Foundation, the International Labour Organization, Women in Informal Employment Globalizing and Organizing (WIEGO) and IIED make a strong case for inclusivity, in "Inclusive governance: partnering with communities and marginalized groups" session, from which four key lessons can be drawn for urban climate resilience:

  1. A resilient city doesn’t stop at flood gates.
  2. We are only as strong as the most marginalized groups of society.
  3. Solutions resulting from participatory processes are simply better solutions.
  4. Participatory processes should be safe, empowering and build off of existing social structures.
