Our vision for 2030
The goals of Making Cities Resilient 2030
- an increasing number of cities committed to reducing local disaster/climate risk and building resilience, with an increasing number of cities demonstrably improving their sustainability through implementing disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation and/or resilience plans and taking actions to enhance their understanding of localized and systemic risks.
- an increasing number of partnerships focused on resilience, globally and regionally, bringing synergized collaboration and support to cities along the resilience roadmap.
The strategic objectives of MCR2030
How will MCR2030 respond to the needs of cities?
MCR2030 responds to the growing understanding of urban risk: how it has changed and is changing, and the impacts this will have on cities and citizens. It recognises the increasing need for a systemic, joined-up approach to risk reduction, that allows city leaders to plan for risk-informed development, and citizens to benefit. MCR2030 builds on lessons learned during the previous MCR Campaign implementation from 2010-2020 and respond to these needs:
How we’re organized
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) supported by the MCR2030 Global Secretariat served by UNDRR.
At the regional level, the Regional Coordinating Committees (RCCs) will be responsible for coordinating and ensuring synergies among regional partners in providing technical support to cities to empower them to progress along the resilience roadmap. MCR2030 is operational in 5 regions where the MCR2030 implementation and support to cities occurs: Africa, Arab States, Americas & the Caribbean, Asia-Pacific, and Europe & Central Asia. Regional Secretariat will be served by the respective UNDRR Regional Offices.
The Global Secretariat and its Regional Secretariat counterpart will be the engine of the MCR2030, operationalizing the work plans and proposing the activities which will allow cities to develop, finance, and execute their DRR and resilience strategies, and coordinating across regions for knowledge sharing and dissemination.
