My city is getting ready. Is yours?
Get ready to join MCR2030
Making Cities Resilient is a network of cities and partners seriously committed to disaster risk reduction. In order to officially sign your city up and access the new knowledge sharing dashboard in January 2021, you’ll need a signed letter from your mayor committing to next steps for your stage on the resilience roadmap.
What happens if I sign up for early access today?
Local governments, partners, and service providers will receive updates on the progress of Making Cities Resilient. They'll also be the first to know when the MCR dashboard tool launches in January 2021, when they'll be able to join MCR2030 officially. The dashboard will allow local governments and partners to share knowledge and resources, working toward disaster risk reduction together. In this online interactive tool, local governments will be able to track their progress and access support to move forward on the resilience roadmap. Service providers and partners will be able to create offers and resources for cities, helping to strengthen and protect their communities.
When local governments get ready to join MCR2030 through the link below, they will receive a letter of commitment specific to their stage on the resilience roadmap. Between now and January 2021, local governments will have time to secure the support of their local leaders for the commitments outlined in the letter, and to get that letter signed. When the dashboard launches in January 2021, cities can join MCR2030 officially with the signed letter in hand.
Supporting Partners are specialized agencies/organizations in the regions that have mandates or activities well aligned with MCR2030 and can provide specific technical inputs in fields that support cities to move through the 12 thematic areas of support of MCR2030 and along the resilience roadmap. This could include 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. Supporting Partners will serve as mentors and play both partnership-brokering and advocacy roles for MCR2030. Supporting Partners are expected to provide these services as part of their in-kind contribution to MCR2030. In addition to in-kind contributions and commitments.
Supporting Partners may actively promote MCR2030 by hosting regional networking, capacity building and information sharing events, as well as providing direct support and engaging with the cities under the remit of the Regional Coordinating Committees (RCCs)
Specialist service providers (SSPs) are the private sector entities or individual experts that can offer technical one-to-one advice and support cities in the formulation of DRR/resilience strategies and implementation of the resilience actions. Cities will have direct access to the list of SSPs through the MCR2030 registry. Most SSPs may charge a fee for their services and are expected to be engaged with the cities and local governments through procurement processes. Such arrangements are to be negotiated between the recipient cities and the SSPs directly and are independent of MCR2030. MCR2030 Core Partners, Supporting Partners and any entities or individuals serving on the advisory bodies of UNDRR and partners cannot join as the SSPs due to potential conflict of interests.
