Focus cities

Tomorrow’s Cities has been co-produced with local and international stakeholders from the start. Our research is designed and led by interdisciplinary research teams and local stakeholders in and between four rapidly developing and multi-hazard exposed cities, in collaboration with international experts. Coordination and support is provided through a central secretariat and management team.

Our aim is to promote and enable multi-hazard risk-informed sustainable urban development, focused on reducing disaster risk for low-income communities.

Our aim is to integrate multi-hazard disaster risk reduction into prevailing planning practice.

Our goal is to provide Nairobi with the capacity and policy framework that enables a shift from crisis response towards integrated development planning for enhanced disaster risk preparedness and management.

Our aim is to facilitate a transition towards an integrated ‘risk culture’ that minimises disaster risk through embedded monitoring, management and mitigation of risks within sustainable planning and decision making across all scales.
