This webinar is aimed at supporting cities to learn how to navigate the online dashboard of MCR2030, understand how they can access services and connect with partners and peer cities. Cities can use the dashboard to track their progress along the resilience roadmap, access support from participating entities, resilience resources, tools and services, as well as the ability to connect to thousands of other cities.
The MCR2030 dashboard is a closed online platform accessible by users that signed up to MCR2030. It helps to facilitate the connection and foster exchanges and collaborations among cities and organizations in making cities resilient. The MCR2030 dashboard brings in participating entities with specific knowledge, tools and expertise that can support cities to progress along the resilience roadmap journey. Cities participating in MCR2030 have access to the services offered by these participating entities which are categorized into thematic areas appropriated for each resilience roadmap stages (A, B or C). Cities can record and monitor progress along the resilience roadmap and share insights and lessons learned with others regionally and globally.
The webinar will raise awareness on MCR2030 and share best practices and lessons learned in establishing new partnerships and greater engagement of key stakeholders in urban risk reduction and strengthening cities’ resilience to climate and disaster risks. As a result, cities will make better use of the tools and resources available at the MCR2030 Dashboard and become more resilient.
All cities and local governments are highly encouraged to sign up as MCR2030 member cities. Any national government, national association of municipality, development agency, NGO/CSO, academia and research institution, private sector, UN entity or organization, network or interested entity with specific knowledge and expertise that can support cities to progress along the resilience roadmap are encouraged to join and support local governments in making cities resilient.
Through delivering a clear 3-stage roadmap to urban resilience, providing tools, access to knowledge and monitoring and reporting tools, MCR2030 partners support cities on their journey to reduce risk and build resilience.
