Description: Resilient Cities 2014 – The Annual Global Forum on Urban Resilience and Adaptation – is the global platform for urban resilience and climate change adaptation, taking place from 29th to 31st May 2014 in Bonn, Germany.

The Resilient Cities congress series was launched in 2010 by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, the World Mayors Council on Climate Change and the City of Bonn, Germany. Each year, Resilient Cities brings together 500 urban planners, mayors, international organization representatives, and researchers from all around the world. The program focuses on a variety of key topics including risk data, adaptation planning, financing the resilient city, city-region food systems, and resilient infrastructure.

Additionally, Resilient Cities 2014 hosts the 4th Mayors Adaptation Forum, which fosters close dialogue between local and global leaders. It culminates in the annual Bonn Declaration of Mayors, which outlines key commitments to action agreed during the congress.  The 2014 forum will focus on urban adaptation and biodiversity, climate governance, Sustainable Development Goals and the Post-2015 UN Development Agenda.
