Making Cities Resilient 2030 (MCR2030): Engaging with Local Governments in Africa
MCR2030 is a place where cities can find guidance and support to enhance understanding on risk reduction and resilience, to improve strategic planning to reduce risk and build resilience, and to take actions and progress along the resilience roadmap. It is a unique cross-stakeholder initiative for improving local resilience through advocacy, sharing knowledge and experiences, establishing mutually reinforcing city-to-city learning networks, injecting technical expertise, connecting multiple layers of government and building partnerships.
All cities and local governments are highly encouraged to sign up as MCR2030 member cities. Any national government, national association of municipality, development agency, NGO/CSO, academia and research institution, private sector, UN entity or organization, network or interested entity with specific knowledge and expertise that can support cities to progress along the resilience roadmap are encouraged to join and support local governments in making cities resilient.
Through delivering a clear 3-stage roadmap to urban resilience, providing tools, access to knowledge and monitoring and reporting tools, MCR2030 partners support cities on their journey to reduce risk and build resilience.
The webinar will raise awareness on MCR2030 and advocate for establishing new partnerships and greater engagement of key stakeholders in urban risk reduction and strengthening cities’ resilience to climate and disaster risks.
