THE PRUV APPROACH

Preparedness and Resilience to address Urban Vulnerability

The challenge posed by urban vulnerability is immense and is being compounded by rapid unplanned urbanisation, climate change and resource pressures. While the realisation that there is a fundamental shift in the landscape of crises to cities is no longer contested, aid actors are nonetheless grappling with the complexities of adapting their approaches to the urban context.

The Preparedness and Resilience to address Urban Vulnerability (PRUV) project aims to inform the pressing need to reshape how humanitarian action and development aid is undertaken in urban areas in order to address the challenge posed by urban vulnerability.

OUR PARTNERS

The PRUV Project is associated with the NOHA Network, an international association of universities engaged in teaching and research in the field of humanitarian action.
