City or township resilience describes the capacity of cities to function, so that the people living and working in cities – particularly the poor and vulnerable can survive and thrive no matter what stresses or shocks they encounter. Resiliency audit is an initiative in establishing a framework and working guidelines for cities, townships, villages and places in conducting systematic hazard and risk identification.
It is a comprehensive resilience management process that involves comprehensive assessment processes engaging local government units, public and private bodies and the civil society. The initiative aims to optimize resiliency of the city and its citizens, where knowledge transfer is a vital component. This knowledge transfer process is the sum of known facts, learned from experiences and best practices, research and studies and sensitization of information and strategies to civil societies at large.
