Following the adoption of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) 2015-2030, CUDRR+R was tasked by the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) with updating the quintessential Making Cities Resilient Campaign Publication, How to Make Cities More Resilient: A Handbook for Local Government Leaders.

The Handbook, written primarily for the local government leaders and policy makers, was developed over a year, presents how-to use the New Ten Essentials, showcasing examples of disaster risk reduction and resilience building practices from Campaign cities, and the Cycle of Resilience Building. The book was the successful result of partnership with Campaign Cities, technical experts and partner organizations and the UNISDR Urban Planning Advisory Group (UPAG).

The New Handbook for Local Government Leaders will soon be available for download at:
