Recife Medellin Exchange
After going through a rigorous evaluation assessment, Recife, Brazil, has been recognized as the fourth Making Cities Resilient 2030 (MCR2030) Resilience Hub in the Americas and the Caribbean and the tenth at global level. The announcement was made on January 10th, 2022. How do cities operate after being recognized as Resilience Hubs? As leaders, they exchange and diffuse their expertise to other cities, learn about best practices from others, and help to build resilience beyond borders. Under the MCR2030 framework, the cities of Medellin, Colombia and Recife, Brazil, held the first exchange between Resilience Hubs in the Americas and Caribbean region. The event took place on February 10, 2022, in hybrid mode.
