Urban Action Kit
Supporting local actors to undertake urban resilience activities in their urban communities can be a powerful way to build social cohesion, improve livelihoods, and make cities more livable. The Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre and partners, under the Partners for Resilience programme, have developed an Urban Action Kit to do just this. Activities in the Kit require little to no funding, are short engagements, and utilize existing networks and skills.
