12 – 16 November 2018 — The City Resilience Action Planning Tool – or CityRAP Tool – is a set of training exercises and activities aimed at developing the capacity of local governments in sub-Saharan Africa to understand and plan actions that progressively build urban resilience and reduce urban risk. The tool specifically targets local governments of small to intermediate sized cities that have limited experience in urban risk reduction and resilience action planning, and that express demand in kick-starting the resilience action planning process.
The CityRAP Tool has been developed by the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN- Habitat), in partnership with the Sub-Regional Technical Centre for Disaster Risk Management, Sustainability, and Urban Resilience (DiMSUR). In 2015 and 2016, the CityRAP was implemented in 6 cities in Mozambique, Malawi, Madagascar, and Ethiopia; and had training activities in 4 other cities.
