CUDRR+R participated at the Fourth Forum of Territorial Managers and Training Institutes in Africa to present the new UCLG – UN-Habitat- UNDRR Learning Module on Resilient Cities and Territories. The learning module authored by Ebru Gencer aims to support local governments and their associations to fulfill the localization of the Sendai Framework for DRR in order to reduce risk and sustainable and resilient communities.

The first volume of the learning module on the localization of the Sendai Framework discusses the fundamentals of resilience building and their potential integration into local and regional governments’ (LRGs’) policy cycle, providing a base framework for LRGs to understand risk and resilience, enhance risk governance, identify available finance mechanisms and opportunities, and formulate their DRR and resilience building strategies and action plans while building capacities for implementation.
