EURESFO has served as a pivotal European initiative since 2013. Organised by ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability and the European Environment Agency (EEA), it has been acting as a unique exchange platform in the field of resilience. The event brings together city representatives, experts, and stakeholders from local and regional institutions to discuss strategies, initiatives, and actions affiliating to climate change adaptation, disaster management, and the cultivation of urban resilience.

The 2024 edition of EURESFO will be built around three key thematic streams and forth special thematic stream, each addressing crucial aspects of resilience, sustainable development and recoveryThe first stream focuses on multilevel governance, cooperation, and the imperative of a just transitionThe second thematic stream delves into water resilience and the promotion of the Blue Economy within and beyond the Mediterranean regionThe third stream aims at enabling the transformation towards resilient, adaptive, and climate-neutral cities and regionsThe fourth special stream focuses on building resilience in fragile settings and bridging the gap between Humanitarian Response to Post-conflict Resilience and Recovery.

The 2024 edition of the European Urban Resilience Forum will take place in the framework of the Valencia Cities Climate Week, together with the Cities Mission Conference and the Energy Cities’ Annual Forum, hosted by the city as part of the Valencia EU Green Capital 2024 celebrations. This collaboration will be a unique opportunity to bring together representatives of cities and regions from across Europe to discuss challenges and opportunities for strengthening resilience in the wider context of sustainable urban development
