Cities Prepare - Reducing Vulnerabilities for the Urban Poor

Act now for future resilience

Cities Prepare! is a call to leaders to recognise and act on the dangers facing people living on the margins in urban centres across Asia.

It follows on World Vision’s first Asia Pacific Disaster Report, prompted by the tragedy of the Asia Tsunami that claimed the lives of tens of thousands in low-lying areas in December 2004.

Planet Prepare! gave voice and focus to the dangers of extreme weather linked to climate change at a time when the world’s leaders gathered in Copenhagen to discuss the impacts of climate change.
