      Resilience Brokers has been working with city communities, city networks, global banks, insurers and private sector since to research and gather evidence 1 on how any city-region could address the growing set of challenges faced, maybe already summarised in an existing strategy, and come up with sound governance and investment plans.   Urban areas will face increased risks as a result of climate change such as heat stress, storms and extreme precipitation, inland and coastal flooding, air pollution, water scarcity, sea-level rise, storm surges, and so on. By the year about 66% of the world’s population will reside in urban areas; much of the projected increase will take place in Asia and by: 1.
