European Urban Resilience Forum 2024 - EURESFO

The 11th edition of European Urban Resilience Forum (EURESFO) on 26-28 June 2024 will be co-organised and hosted by the City of Valencia, distinguished as the European Green Capital for 2024.

EURESFO has served as a pivotal European initiative since 2013. Organised by ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability and the European Environment Agency (EEA), it has been acting as a unique exchange platform in the field of resilience. The event brings together city representatives, experts, and stakeholders from local and regional institutions to discuss strategies, initiatives, and actions affiliating to climate change adaptation, disaster management, and the cultivation of urban resilience.

The 2024 edition of EURESFO will be built around three key thematic streams and forth special thematic stream, each addressing crucial aspects of resilience, sustainable development and recovery. The first stream focuses on multilevel governance, cooperation, and the imperative of a just transition. The second thematic stream delves into water resilience and the promotion of the Blue Economy within and beyond the Mediterranean region. The third stream aims at enabling the transformation towards resilient, adaptive, and climate-neutral cities and regions. The fourth special stream focuses on building resilience in fragile settings and bridging the gap between Humanitarian Response to Post-conflict Resilience and Recovery.

The 2024 edition of the European Urban Resilience Forum will take place in the framework of the Valencia Cities Climate Week, together with the Cities Mission Conference and the Energy Cities' Annual Forum, hosted by the city as part of the Valencia EU Green Capital 2024 celebrations.
