With most of the world population living in urban environments, cities have become engines of (economic) development and innovation. But cities also face many of the world’s most pressing challenges, making urban resilience and smart solutions key concepts in the urban governance agenda. This course will discuss crucial questions such as: How can cities adapt and be resilient? What policies and approaches can they apply and how can they finance these? How can cities use data and technology to enhance resilience?
Due to the travel restrictions associated with the Coronavirus outbreak, the format of the course has been adjusted. We are now offering a practice-oriented blended course, consisting of two parts:

Dates: 1 March to 9 April, 2021.
Face-to-Face course: Participants will spend eight days in The Netherlands, focusing on study visits, expert presentations, and the exchange of experiences with other participants.
