We are a city of ambitions. We have challenging goals on growth, mobility, sustainablity, security and inclusiveness. Expanding the timeframe to 2030, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) mention the grand ambitions to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. We aim for these goals with confidence. We have learned considerably from the global economic crisis and today we enjoy scientific and technological resources that are greater than ever.
However, we must also recognise that we live in a world of social, economic and environmental risks. One of the first steps to build resilience is to understand what these possible adversities may be.
Taking a resilience approach means understanding our risks – and the complex relationships between them.
