Liveable Cities Philippines celebrates World Cities Day. This year’s theme is “Adapting Cities for Climate Resilience” and focuses on innovation, best practices, and solutions to build urban climate resilience. It’s an important theme for countries like the Philippines which is vulnerable to natural disasters and weather-related disturbances. The vast majority of our natural calamities are typhoons, some of which have grown more severe as a result of climate change.
We are living in a climate-defined future. In order to make our cities more liveable, it will become increasingly important to make our cities more resilient and adaptable to climate risks. Our Mayors, city managers, urban planners, and residents will need to work together to make this happen.
Liveable Cities is committed to working with cities and municipalities to make our communities more liveable and resilient.
