Invitation to the event “Towards Cities Resilience – Stewardship as a Gamechanger”

June 07, 2022

Cities face severe threats through resource shortages, natural disasters aggravated by climate change and increasing service delivery demands. Particularly in emerging and developing economies, many cities lack strategies to mitigate these risks.

Yet, cities as economic powerhouses also offer huge opportunities to bring about change.

In this context the Stewardship approach has been successfully implemented by the Natural Resources Stewardship Programme (NatuReS) through multi-stakeholder partnerships to improve environmental, social and economic resilience in cities.

These partnerships bring together empowered communities, government stakeholders and a strong and engaging private sector to work on eye-level and jointly develop solutions citie sface on their way to increased resilience.

You have the opportunity to learn more about how the Stewardship approach can be a gamechanger in cities resilience and jointly discuss this question with NatuReS and its partners on the 30th of June 2022!

You will get to know first-hand experiences and best-practices of representatives from the public, private, and civil society sector and have the opportunity to participate in the discussion.

The event will take place online via MS Teams. You can access the event with this link.
