The City Resilience Profiling Programme (CRPP) is the technical pillar of UN-Habitat’s Urban Resilience Programme, engaging with all local level partners and stakeholders.
It focuses on making cities resilient through local governments, by providing the tools and knowledge required to build their capacity to prepare, respond and recover from all shocks and stresses, leading them towards sustainability. It provides cities the necessary framework and approach to evaluate urban resilience and develop Actions for Resilience (A4R) tailored to their city. Its primary tool is the City Resilience Profiling Tool (CRPT). The CRPT uses a diagnostic methodology to determine shocks and stresses facing a city and establishes prioritised actions allowing cities to capitalise on their existing data. The CRPT and accompany guidance assist local governments to deliver on targets set out in globally agreed inter-governmental frameworks, in particular
The CRPT follows a holistic and integrated approach, which not only aims at increasing the resilience of a given city, but also generates a learning value on data collection and organisation beyond the scope of resilience.
