[MCR2030-UNDRR-CRP] City Resilience Program : Supporting cities in building resilience

febrero 2 @ 6:00 am - 7:00 am

Event Description

The City Resilience Program (CRP) is a partnership between the World Bank and GFDRR. Launched in June 2017, the City Resilience Program (CRP) aims to help cities in low and middle-income countries strategize, plan and prepare climate mitigation and adaptation projects. The aim of the program is to catalyze a shift toward longer term, more comprehensive multi-disciplinary packages of technical and financial services, building the pipeline for viable projects at the city level that, in turn, build resilience.

 

This session of the Making Cities Resilient 2030 (MCR2030) webinar aims to provide in-depth information to help cities, local authorities, and their partners understand better what the City Resilience Program is and how to access its support.  It will include the information on the type of support provided, the eligibility criteria and relevant application process.  It will also highlight some examples of the types of successful projects and key components of what makes these applications successful.

 

Cities shall be equipped with necessary information should they be interested to apply for the City Resilience Program support.

About the City Resiliene Programme (CRP)

The City Resilience Program (CRP) is a partnership between the World Bank and GFDRR. Launched in June 2017 as a multi-donor initiative aimed at increasing financing for urban resilience, the Program is supported by the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Finance. CRP’s vision is resilient cities with the capacity to plan for and mitigate adverse impacts of disasters and climate change, thus enabling them to save lives, reduce losses, and unlock economic and social potential. The aim of the program is to catalyze a shift toward longer term, more comprehensive multi-disciplinary packages of technical and financial services, building the pipeline for viable projects at the city level that, in turn, build resilience.

CRP pursues three strategic objectives to move toward this vision: Cities have increased access to tools and technical support to effectively plan for resilience. Cities have increased access to multiple sources of financing to ensure that more investment in resilience come to fruition. Cities can leverage global partnerships to support their resilience objectives.

CRP supports cities across three main thematic areas: Planning for Resilience focuses on providing technical support to ensure that capital investment plans are risk informed. Finance for Resilience zeros in on capital mobilization around urban resilience. Partnership for Resilience concentrates on advocacy and convening global expertise. Together, these three thematic areas are key to helping cities address the resilience challenges of the future.
