Rachel, I really like this blog article. I guess it is high time that the leaders of this world took a solid stand to increase global resilience. I hold that so far, the government's of the world have just adopted the 'Don't wake me up' attitude. See more here: http://esedo.org/wp/2012/10/07/climate-change-dont-wake-me-up/ Your call to improve the resilience of our urban areas is a wise one. Climate-proofing our urban areas and infrastructure cannot be overemphasized. We just need to wake up from the bliss of ignorance and face the bare facts on climate change. The LDCs are more at risk, yet they have contributed the least to climate change as compared to their developed counterparts. We must embrace climate justice in this regard, for sustainable development. Regards.
