We invite policy makers, scholars or city practitioners to discuss which are institutional, planning or governance issue within the challenge of addressing the metropolitan scale of resilience implementation.

This panel aims at further discuss the most relevant questions emerged through the workshop, as for instance:

  • How the concept of resilience could help framing across scales agreement, minimizing the spatial trade-offs (one part of the city/region benefitting from another increased exposure to threats)?
  • Which could be the funding mechanisms to ensure across sectors and boundaries collaborations?
  • How public-private or public-public co-management agreements could foster inter-municipality cooperation in building resilience?
  • How resilience could be adopted through strategic planning at the metropolitan levels? Is planning a proper tool for framing the enabling conditions for building resilience at the metropolitan level?
