Amaratunga, Dilanthi and Haigh, Richard (2012) Making Cities Resilient How Local Governments Reducing Disaster Risks – Sri Lanka Case Study 2012. In: Making Cities Resilient, August 2012.

The Making Cities Resilient Campaign was launched in Sri Lanka in May 2011. The Ministry of Disaster Management and the Disaster Management Centre led the national launch in partnership with: Ministry of Local Government; Centre for Disaster Resilience, University of Salford, UK; Practical Action; UNDP Sri Lanka; and, UNISDR. The launch provided an appropriate backdrop for a policy, academic and practitioner audience to explore how they may support the campaign's goal: to help cities and local governments to get ready, reduce the risks and become resilient to disasters.
