Cities play a major role in triggering global problems such as social inequalities, urban and territorial inequities, environmental impacts, climate change and pandemics. However, cities also experience the consequences of these conditions, as well as offering a space for creating solutions. From November 30th to December 2nd the International Conference of Resilient Cities from the Global South will be held online, as a collaboration effort between the Center for Sustainable Urban Development (CEDEUS), the Research Center for Integrated Disaster Risk Management (CIGIDEN), and the Center for Climate and Resilience Research ((CR)2).

This conference will present the discussions and scientific development regarding the role of resilience in the development of cities and also related issues like governance, adaptation, climate change impacts and others. The aim is to promote the scientific discussion from the Global South, to foment the networking among policy˗makers and the scientific staff in multiple levels and with participation of communities.

IIASA participation will happen through the presentation of the work entitled "Prototype of Social˗ecological systems resilience analysis with a dynamic index". This work is co-authored by Bruno Meirelles de Oliveira and Brian Fath and collaborators, both authors are from the Systemic Risk and Resilience (SYRR) group in the Advancing System Analysis (ASA) Program. This work is a case study developed for a Brazilian coastal city partially developed during the Young Scientists Summer Program at IIASA in 2019 and brings the results of an integrative modeling development and application regarding resilience against climate change and other shocks.
