MCR2030 Webinar: From emergency response to resilience: future-proof city region food systems
The webinar, led by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), in partnership with the United Nations Office of Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), will feature a line-up of local government representatives with extensive experience of building resilient city region food system.
This Building Resilient Urban Systems webinar series is linked to the High-Level Meeting of the Midterm Review of the Sendai Framework which takes place 17-19 May at the UN General Assembly. The Meeting is set to highlight resilient food systems as an important element of DRR at the urban and sub-national level.
The MCR2030 global partnership has mobilized more than 1,530 local governments, representing over 482 million people in 76 countries and territories. It is committed to strengthening disaster and climate resilience at the sub-national level. Twenty-one of these municipalities are recognized as Resilience Hubs – global leaders in disaster risk reduction. The initiative has also mobilized national governments, international organizations, private sector enterprises, academic organizations, and NGOs. MCR2030 is a ‘who’s who’ of partners with unmatched expertise and experience in supporting greater urban resilience.
