      Making Cities Resilient

      banner

       

      Launched in May 2010, the global Making Cities Resilient: 'My City is getting ready!' campaign addresses issues of local governance and urban risk to help local governments reduce risk and build urban resilience.

      The MCR Campaign is led by UNDRR but is self-motivating, partnership and city-driven. UNDRR ONEA & GETI hosts the MCR Secretariat.

      Supporting proactive, local action towards sustainable urbanization, the MCR Campaign offers solutions and tools for local governments and actors to identify gaps in their resilience and to increase financial, technical and knowledge-based capacity for development planning and risk management. Joining the Campaign, cities become a part of a broad alliance of resilient cities worldwide.
