Stage C: Cities Implement Better
Stage C of the resilience roadmap focuses on supporting cities in the implementation of risk reduction and resilience actions. Cities in this stage have a relatively robust DRR, resilience and sustainability plan in place and may be in the early stages of implementation or already working towards mainstreaming the DRR/resilience strategy and activities across its governments’ structure. These cities will be initially focused on improving their cross-sector governance structure, increasing their ability to access finance and to design and deliver resilient infrastructure, developing nature-based solutions and improving inclusion, and must demonstrate commitment to implement and mainstream DRR and resilience across all sectors and to share experiences with others. Cities certified with ISO37123- Sustainable cities and communities will automatically join this stage.
Cities in Stage C should continue progressing in the followings and share experience with other cities especially through the MCR2030 dashboard:
- Develop a pipeline of bankable projects to implement DRR and resilience actions (Demonstrate how the city converts DRR and resilience building ideas into projects and increase access to finance and sustain implementation)
- Implement specific activities on DRR and resilience and sustain longer term actions across city departments (Demonstrate that the city has begun implementing its DRR and resilience strategy by different city actors)
- Mainstream and institutionalize DRR and resilience strategies and activities across all sectors of the city (Demonstrate how the city has institutionalized DRR and resilience in the city governance and across different development sectors)
- Act as a mentor and share experiences with Stage A and B cities (Showcase the city achievements and support other cities to progress along the resilience roadmap)
