Rapid urbanization places pressure on existing infrastructure facilities and the carrying capacity of cities. Pakistan has one of the highest population and urbanisation growth rates in the world. Urban resilience is the capacity of cities to act efficiently so that their residents and workforce, especially the vulnerable people endure the stresses or shocks they encounter in their everyday lives. In cities that are less resilient and have weak governance systems, it is difficult for various utilities to perform efficiently. Pakistan Institute of Development Economics (PIDE) conducted a study to understand the impact of urban resilience on electricity provision in Karachi, Islamabad, and Peshawar. The webinar will share the findings of the report and discuss urban resilience challenges with the speakers.
