CityStrength Diagnostic Methodological Guidebook

December 2015

Financially supported by a grant from the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), the CityStrength Diagnostic was developed to help World Bank staff apply this new holistic approach to urban resilience to operations. It was designed to help facilitate a dialogue among stakeholders (e.g. government, civil society, residents, and the private sector) about risks, resilience, and the performance of urban systems. It is important to note that CityStrength is an engagement process, not an analytical study.
