The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) launched the Making Cities Resilient Campaign to improve land use and urban planning for 1,800 participating cities worldwide. City planners everywhere are designing programs for the sustainable use of energy and natural resources. Many are making plans that fortify their cities against the onslaught of natural disaster.
Esri is collaborating with UNISDR on the initiative and giving these cities access to its desktop and developer technology. Esri calls on the developer community to lend a hand by including the ArcGIS Platform in the development of new apps for urban resilience.
