Cities are leading change across the world, in all five regions
MCR2030 operates at two levels simultaneously. At the global level, the MCR2030 implementation and delivery strategy is negotiated, agreed and formed by the Core Partners, coordinated through the Global Coordinating Committee (GCC), and supported by the MCR2030 Global Secretariat, which is served by UNDRR Global Education and Training Institute (GETI) based in Incheon, Republic of Korea.
MCR2030 implementation and support to cities takes place at the regional level.

Thousands of cities across five regions
MCR2030 is operational in 5 regions: Africa, Arab States, Americas & the Caribbean, Asia-Pacific, and Europe & Central Asia. The Regional Coordinating Committees (RCC) in each region will be responsible for coordinating and ensuring synergies among regional partners to provide technical support to cities and empower them to progress along the resilience roadmap. The RCCs will be supported by the Regional Secretariats served by the respective UNDRR Regional Offices.
I call for the need of world leaders to address climate change and reduce the increasing risk of disasters – and world leaders must include mayors, townships and community leaders.
—Ban Ki-moon, former UN Secretary-General, at the Incheon Conference ‘Building an Alliance of Local Governments for Disaster Risk Reduction’, August 9th, 2009
Helping your city thrive

Thousands of participating cities and supporters collaborated over a series of planning sessions, conferences, meetings, and seminars to better protect their villages, towns, and cities.
