Overview

Office for Northeast Asia (ONEA) and Global Education and Training Institute (GETI)

 

The UNDRR Office for Northeast Asia & Global Education and Training Institute (UNDRR ONEA & GETI) was established in 2010 to develop a new cadre of professionals in disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation to build disaster resilient societies.

ONEA & GETI also hosts the Global Secretariat for the Making Cities Resilient 2030 (MCR2030)

UNDRR Office for Northeast Asia (ONEA) supports five countries: Republic of Korea, China, Japan, Mongolia and DPR Korea specifically to reduce disaster loss and risk and to ensure Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 implementation.

The Global Education and Training Institute (GETI) has a global mandate to provide capacity building support to mainstream disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation into sustainable development; convene and support inter-city learning to strengthen resilience (Making Cities Resilient); and to provide capacity building and best practice sharing support to national training institutions working on resilience issues.

Quarterly updates on ONEA & GETI activities and impact are available in ONEA & GETI Newsletters.

      Making Cities Resilient 2030 (MCR2030)

       

      Is your city resilient?

      Join other cities, local governments and partners taking steps on a pathway to resilience – making the city safer, preventing risks and promoting innovation and investments.  

      Making Cities Resilient 2030 (MCR2030) is a unique cross-stakeholder initiative for improving local resilience through advocacy, sharing knowledge and experiences, establishing mutually reinforcing city-to-city learning networks, injecting technical expertise, connecting multiple layers of government and building partnerships. 

      Launched on 28 October 2020, MCR2030 aims to leverage knowledge and expertise of partners to support cities through a clear three-stage resilience roadmap, from enhancing knowledge on risk and resilience, putting in place disaster risk reduction and resilience strategies, and moving toward implementation and taking actions to strengthen resilience.

      Through delivering a clear roadmap to urban resilience and providing access to knowledge management and monitoring and reporting tools, MCR2030 will support cities on their journey to reduce risk and build resilience. MCR2030 aims to ensure cities become inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable by 2030, contributing directly to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 11 (SDG11) and other global frameworks including the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Paris Agreement and the New Urban Agenda.

      UNDRR Global Education and Training Institute (GETI) is the global coordinator of MCR2030.
