Roadmap for Building Urban Resilience in Zimbabwe

Dec 1, 2020

In 2019 UNDP and UNICEF have initiated the implementation of the Partnership for Building Urban Resilience in Zimbabwe programme. 

The objective of the programme is developing an urban resilience model in selected towns as well as generating evidence and knowledge to strengthen the urban resilience in the country. Its overall goal is to find ways to reduce increasing vulnerability of people in urban areas and build resilience of urban systems to the benefit of people. 

Within this framework, they have engaged with the Government of Zimbabwe (GoZ), Ministry of Local Government and Public Works (MLGPW) (former Ministry of Local Government and Public Works and National Housing ex-MLGPWNH) and the Urban Local Authority Association of Zimbabwe (UCAZ) to  conduct a national Urban Resilience System Assessment (URSA). The URSA was conducted in 2019 in order to fill the knowledge gap and enable evidence-based urban resilience programming in Zimbabwe. 

Based on the findings of the URSA, the MLGPW in partnership with UNDP and UNICEF have developed and adopted the present Roadmap for Building Urban Resilience in Zimbabwe. UNDP and UNICEF are uniquely positioned globally and locally to support building resilience in urban areas of Zimbabwe.
