With the majority of the world population living in urban environments today, cities are both the centers of development and innovation and confronted with the most pressing challenges. Urban resilience and smart city solutions have become important concepts in the urban governance agenda, providing a way forward for urban local authorities, city planners, urban policymakers and practitioners.

This course on urban governance focuses on strategies, frameworks and tools to strengthen cities’ resilience: their ability to absorb and recover from internal and external shock or stress, maintain their essential functions and adapt and thrive in the face of continual change. The course will also cover smart city solutions by examining the role data and innovative technologies play in promoting resilience.

The course combines theoretical debates with practical experiences, real-life scenarios, as well as group work. The discussions are designed to address cities' resilience questions.
