Our motivation

Today, the effects of urbanization and climate change are stressing development all over the world. As cities contribute to climate change, they also become more vulnerable. With this in mind, there is increasing demand to measure and plan for mitigation, adaptation and resilience.

Hundreds of millions of people are exposed to natural hazards: sea level rise, flooding, cyclones and storms, drought, extreme heat and cold. Because of this, infrastructure and basic services are susceptible to impacts, which affects the socioeconomic status and quality of life for people living and working in affected areas. Despite this, many cities and regions have not addressed these challenges, failing to incorporate effective actions, regulations and policies that focus on reducing risk caused by hazards and climate change.

What are the issues to be solved?

We are committed to creating suitable conditions that enhance community, environment and city strength, sustainability and resilience, not only in the present, but also as an evolving state, with the use of empowering tools.

The lack of appropriate action plans; urban and environment plans which have not been adjusted to include climate change; slow response to these rapid transformations due to a lack of capacity and resources; and lack of public awareness on climate variability are current serious issues. The challenges brought by climate change, also represent an opportunity to predict socioeconomic inequality and urban sustainability problems.
