This Chapter highlights selected resilience and sustainability measures that can be implemented in cities and towns now to ensure that our communities, as well as future generations, will be able to deal with the difficult challenges our region faces. Sections 4.2 and 4.3 deal with building resilience of cities and towns to climate-related disasters and rising temperatures, while Section 4.4 covers potential measures that can be taken within the built environment to address the limited (and currently unsustainable use of) natural resources including fossil fuels, land, and water. Table 3 below summarizes the key issues and selected measures highlighted in this Chapter, together with the related SDGs.
