Stakeholders involved in defining urban public policies to promote resilience include community organizations working in areas on the outskirts of cities, citizen movements and networks, the private sector, and governments.
Urban governance is strengthened thanks to accountability processes, where citizen monitoring and mobilization are the basis for open governments.
Actions are scaled up via the Regional Initiative for Resilient Cities, with an emphasis on private sector participation and community-building through the revitalization of public spaces.
• Mechanisms for citizen participation, transparency, and accountability encourage inclusive urban development.
• Public spaces serve as a hub for the transformation of governance models and urban quality of life.
• The private sector participates in the development and implementation of resilience plans in cities.
• The use of civic technology strengthens participatory governance.
• Scalable and sustainable financial solutions are developed to improve urban resilience.
• Local governments pass laws and public policies dealing with transparency and accountability.
• Public policies are implemented to improve access to and quality of public spaces and basic city services.
• Agreements are made with the private and public sectors to participate in urban resilience plans.
