UNISDR Resilient Cities Connect
UNISDR facilitates city-to-city learning in collaboration with support from partners. Sharing lessons is a key part of UNISDR's Making Cities Resilient Campaign towards the implementation of the Sendai Framework at the local level. City-to-city learning is an advantageous opportunity for cities to connect and share experiences, obtain support and create an effective network to increase their urban resilience capacities. The ability to innovate and tailor solutions to particular conditions experienced in cities is strengthened and enriched by the sharing and exchanging of knowledge with those that have experienced similar problems and conditions. It is with this purpose in mind that UNISDR, with the support of the European Commission’s DG-DEVCO, is calling for the submission of proposals for city learning exchanges on disaster risk reduction and resilience building among local governments.
You can find out more information on this opportunity and apply through documents available this web page. The deadline for submitting applications is January 15, 2017.
UNISDR gladly welcomes applications from all local governments and cities of the Making Cities Resilient Campaign including those participating in initiatives of other partners.
