Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Contemporary cities and their residents face phenomenal vulnerabilities stemming, inter alia, from social polarization, urban conflict, terrorism, natural disasters, and, most recently, climate change, which augments the likelihood and intensity of such disasters and, in addition, undermines the urban infrastructures on which modern life depends. Their destructive impacts, both those we can anticipate today and those which are as yet unknown, are likely to increase in the near future.  In recent years, there has thus been growing awareness among scholars and practitioners in a variety of fields of the urgent need for cities to increase their resilience to the threats they will almost certainly encounter. The proposed call for papers is seeking to address critical questions concerning the readiness of cities around the world in general and in developing countries regarding climate change risks. How resilient are our cities?  Do they have the capacity to cope with the multiplicity of climate change challenges and the threats pose?  What cities do to reduce their vulnerabilities?  What policies and measures have cities adopted to augment their coping with climate change?
