Resilient and Inclusive Cities



The current context derived from Covid-19 has revealed the inequitable reality of the cities in the region. Unplanned urbanization processes have generated inequality and exclusion in our cities. This is translated into the difficult advancement in development matters and the impossibility of guaranteeing hygiene and protection measures for the most vulnerable urban populations in the face of the pandemic. The interaction between the spatial, social and economic dimensions of inclusion, together with the impacts of Covid-19, have made evident the need to rethink our cities from the perspective of disaster risk reduction, urban planning, and social and economic inclusion.
