Capacity Building Models and Tools to Strengthen Cities Resilience in Asia and Pacific
23 February 2023, Thursday
14:00 - 15:45 Hours (Thailand Time)
Join via Webex
This webinar aims to help cities and local governments, International Non- Governmental Organisations (INGOs), Civil Society Organisations officials, urban planners, Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and adaptation experts to learn more about practical applications of resilience building models, tools and methodologies as well as various capacity-building approaches and methodologies used by different MCR2030 partner organisations in the cities of Asia and Pacific region countries.
The webinar will also raise awareness on MCR2030 and share best practices and lessons learned in establishing new partnerships and greater engagement of key stakeholders in urban risk reduction and strengthening cities' resilience to climate and disaster risks.
Looking beyond 2020, there is an urgent need to accelerate the progress of resilience building at the local level, to bring cities on to the resilience pathway towards achieving the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the New Urban Agenda, the Paris Agreement, and the Sustainable Development Goals, by 2030. There is also a need for more innovative training and capacity development models, approaches, tools and methodologies for the successful implementation of measures to enhance disaster resilience at the local level specifically at the Asia and Pacific region where the population density is high.
Webinar on “Making Cities Resilient 2030 (MCR2030): Cities and Partners Engagement in Asia and the Pacific” is organised by the Regional Resource Centre for Asia and the Pacific located in the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT RRC.AP) in collaboration with the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI), the United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) and the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC).
