Cities are on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic, facing unprecedented healthcare, economic, and social crises. This Community of Practice, Resilient Recovery, has emerged from the urgent and ongoing practice exchange between cities in our global network of Chief Resilience Officers and urban resilience practitioners.

Through this web-based resource, practitioners can access the synthesized knowledge and good practice emerging from across the globe on COVID-19 recovery, and choose to engage further by participating in existing regional or thematic recovery communities. The content organized on this page reflects the three main themes of this Community of Practice: A people-centred recovery, a risk-aware recovery, and a system-enabled recovery.

Emerging Practice

A people-centered recovery

With COVID-19 changing and intensifying vulnerabilities, and challenging a people-centered recovery, we look at how cities are putting vulnerability and equity at the center of recovery.

A risk-aware recovery

As COVID-19 strains existing disaster preparedness, while also overlapping with seasonal and other hazard risks, we look at how cities are responding to multiple and overlapping risks.

A system-enabled recovery

Crises in healthcare, economy, and society have exposed frailties in the capacity of cities –  their government, their businesses, and their communities – to survive and thrive. As cities enter a recovery phase, we look at how they are meeting the needs of communities and businesses in recovery.

Partners

This emerging practice includes content unearthed by our Cities on the Frontline Speaker Series, organized with the support from The World Bank’s City Resilience Program, which has been sharing targeted lessons on recovery from leaders and experts, including CROs, since early 2020.
