Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This Workbook offers a step-by-step guide for city officials in proactively planning for natural disasters and climate change impacts. It is based on learning from three cities in Vietnam - Ha Noi, Can Tho, and Dong Hoi - that developed Local Resilience Action Plans (LRAPs) containing a set of prioritized actions, related to both infrastructure as well as policy/ regulatory and socioeconomic actions. These LRAPs are based on vulnerability and risks assessments, a gaps analysis drawing on an inventory of planned investments and policy changes, and multi-stakeholder priority setting. The on-the-ground learning from these pilot cities in Vietnam has paved the way for cities in China, Indonesia, and the Philippines to embark on similar processes. This Workbook is a complement to the best-selling Climate Resilient Cities: A Primer on Reducing Vulnerabilities to Disasters (2009).

Book News Annotation:

In recent years large cities in developing countries have experienced a 160.4 percent increase in economic damages due to natural disasters. The developing world's exponential urban growth coupled with the dangers posed by increasing frequencies of natural disasters due to climate change are prompting a new focus on urban resilience planning. This workbook covers new urban resilience strategies and procedures gained from the natural disaster experiences of three Vietnamese cities: Ha Noi, Can Tho, and Dong Hoi. The entire planning process is covered in-depth including templates and examples. This workbook, intended for those studying urban resilience planning, is a supplement to the World Bank publication Climate Resilient Cities: A Primer on Reducing Vulnerabilities to Disaster.
