Online Capacity Development Workshop on MCR2030 and Urban Risk-Informed Planning
Making Cities Resilient 2030 (MCR2030) was globally launched in October 2020 to strengthen support to cities on their journey to reduce risks and build resilience. It calls on cities to enhance knowledge on urban risk, strategically plan and take actions to address the underlying drivers of risk. Cities must take a holistic and systemic approach to resilience and build stronger and more resilient systems in the future.
With technical support from UNDRR Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific and the Global Education and Training Institute (GETI), the Indonesia National Agency for Disaster Management (BNPB), Disaster Management Strategic Development Directorate, will support and assist the local-level government to join the MCR2030 initiative and scale up the development and implementation of local strategies national wide. It is expected that through the local-level governments' participation in the MCR2030, Indonesia cities, will increase their risk knowledge and enlarge their networks.
