Building Resilient Cities in Valencia: wrap up for EURESFO24!


From June 26 to 28, 2024, the European Urban Resilience Forum (EURESFO24) was held in the vibrant city of Valencia, Spain. This annual event has become a cornerstone for urban resilience, attracting city leaders, climate experts, policymakers, and stakeholders from across Europe and beyond to collaborate on strategies for building resilient cities in the face of climate change and other urban challenges.

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