1. Glossary

 

  • Participating entity: Any national government entity, national association of municipality, development agency, non-governmental organizations (NGO), civil society organizations (CSO), academia and research institution, private sector organization, UN entity or organization, networks or interested entities 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. The following three categories of entities are involved with the MCR2030:
     
    • ‘Core Partners’ or Members of the Global Coordinating Committee of the MCR2030: include C40 Cities, ICLEI – Local Government for Sustainability, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Resilient Cities Network (R-Cities), United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT), United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), The World Bank Group, and World Council on City Data (WCCD) serving as the Global Coordinating Committee of MCR2030 and providing a strategic guidance to the implementation of MCR2030.
    • ‘Supporting Entities’ or Gratis technical expertise-providing entities are non-commercial entities with expertise in specialized areas in the regions that have mandates or activities aligned with MCR2030 and can provide specific gratis technical inputs in fields that support cities to move through the 12 thematic areas in support of MCR2030 and along the resilience roadmap. This includes national government development agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), civil society organizations (CSOs), academia and research institutions, media, as well as national governments, national associations of municipalities, and others. These entities are able to provide gratis services as part of their in-kind contribution to MCR2030 cities. 
    • Specialist Service Providers (SSPs) are the entities, including but not limited to the private sector, that can offer technical one-to-one advice and support cities in the formulation and implementation of the resilience actions. SSPs may charge a fee for their services and are expected to be engaged by the cities and local governments through the cities or local government’s procurement processes. Such arrangements are to be entered into by the recipient cities and the service providers directly and are independent of MCR2030. Any entity serving on an advisory body of UNDRR such as the ARISE may join as a SSP but shall not use their affiliation to the UN for any private or commercial gain.
       
  • Dashboard: MCR2030 dashboard is a closed online workspace only accessible by cities participating in the MCR2030 and participating entities (organizations) who want to provide tools, knowledge products, technical assistance and consultancy services that can help local governments improves resilience.  The MCR2030 dashboard displays these services in a directory, similar to yellow-pages, in which a city can view a catalogue of services, and look for a potential partner or service provider to support their work in disaster risk reduction and resilience building. Some services may be free of charge, while some services may involve fees and entail transaction agreements. Cities can browse the information about the service and decide to contact partners/service providers to further understand each other’s needs, the requirements, terms and conditions for service provision, and determine the most beneficial modality to achieve the delivery of services, including local procurement procedures. 
     
  • Service: Something that an organization can offer to cities, related to DRR and resilience. For example, training, workshop, a grant, consulting services, tools and methodologies, etc. All services must contribute to at least one of the 12 thematic areas of support provided under MCR2030.
     
  • MCR2030 thematic areas of support: Thematic areas of support under MCR2030 are divided into 12 categories, spreading across the three stages of resilience roadmap.
