About this series

This series has its origins in papers selected from the Resilient Cities Congresses held in Bonn, Germany. The books in the series are dedicated to the annual global events forum on cities and adaptation. Cutting-edge papers will represent the latest research on topics related to reflect the intensification of the debate on the meaning of and interaction between climate adaptation, risk reduction and broader resilience. The contributors offer material related to resilience, such as water, energy and food security; green infrastructure; the role of renewables and ecosystem services; vulnerable communities and urban poor; and responsive financing for adaptation and multi-level governance. Books in the series will prove invaluable to anyone interested in deepening their understanding of urban resilience and contributing to tackling climate change at the local level.
