Studies point to a rapid increase in the number of crises due to phenomena such as climate change and the global interconnection of networks that facilitates the spread of risks. To face this situation, all levels of government, and especially cities, are being encouraged to develop resilience. Despite the concept's popularity, significant gaps are evident between the discourse around resilience and its implementation. In Canada and worldwide, the implementation of resilience is being investigated by a growing number of scholars from various disciplines.

 

Our project aims to assemble the efforts of various practitioners and researchers to help emerge discussion paths and facilitate the implementation of urban resilience by organizing an Urban Resilience Workshop. This will bring researchers and practitioners together for a 3-day knowledge-brokering workshop on challenging issues in the implementation of urban resilience.

 

It will connect scientific evidence with lay knowledge in order to co-construct 1) solutions and 2) future research questions around the 5 topics to be explored in researcher/practitioner panels: evidence-based practices, policy design for resilience, mobilization of the ecosystem, breaking down silos at the municipal level, and capacity building.

The goal is to develop collaboration between practitioners and academic communities to enable co-construction of research problems, develop innovative research, promote the contextualization of solutions and increase the dissemination and adoption of scientific knowledge about urban resilience.
