In 2012, the World Bank initiated the
building urban resilience in East Asia program, aimed at
increasing the resilience of cities to disasters and the
impact of climate change by using a risk-based approach to
making public investment decisions. The objective is to
demonstrate a scalable methodology and practical tools for
risk assessment that can be used for city-level investment
decisions. This activity started with engaging selected
cities that have reasonable complexity and are experiencing
significant growth. The next step involved conversations
about disaster and climate risks confronting the cities and
the options that they can consider in building resilience.
The result of this experiment is presented in this report.
The book begins with two chapters on the disaster and
climate vulnerabilities in the context of Indonesian cities,
and the basic framework developed by the World Bank building
urban resilience in East Asia program. The subsequent two
chapters describe the rapid risk diagnostic as the first
step in the urban resilience engagement, and the summary of
the diagnostic findings in selected Indonesian cities. The
final chapter provides a glimpse of how options to invest in
resilience can be materialized in practice as part of a
city’s development.
