UNISDR Science And Technology Conference on The Implementation of The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030

Stephen Passmore and Scott Williams are at the conference to show how the resilience.io collaboration supports disaster risk reduction and the Sendai framework by helping investors to achieve the Global Goals and disaster risk reduction and enabling the shift from disaster response to disaster prevention in cities.

Transparency – COP21

Partnering to help implement the Paris Agreement 2016 – 2030

The Ecological Sequestration Trust with ICL and IIER are creating an open-source systems platform, resilience.io that enables any city region to bring together data on human and ecological system resource flows and the economics of human well-being. The data can be used for collaborative decision making by communities, private and public sectors working together. The key to success of this approach is to mobilise open data and community sourced data using a data brokering framework. The building of the platform by a city region needs to be trusted and supported by independently verified data, bringing greater transparency and evidence based decision making.

Capacity Building – COP21

Partnering to help implement the Paris Agreement 2016 – 2030

The Ecological Sequestration Trust and Future Earth Ltd., are working together to help create a scalable model of capacity building in city regions and human settlements, resilience.io to enable them to tackle climate change mitigation and adaptation and to deliver the challenging targets for Urban Goal 11 for inclusive, resilient, sustainable cities. The Trust are working with partners UNSDSN Urban Campaign Group, UCLG, UN Habitat, IIHS and the global finance community on the creation of a global fund which can support the critical education and research required , alongside project delivery, to enable the 2030 targets to be achieved. The project delivery platform resilience.io may be a key part of this roadmap to 2030.Here are links to research and practice of partners on global capacity building .

Technology Transfer – COP21

Partnering to help implement the Paris Agreement 2016 – 2030

The Ecological Sequestration Trust with ICL and IIER, are building an open-source systems platform for city regions resilience.io which includes technology process blocks for infrastructure, buildings and industrial plants and models community consumption patterns. This will enable city regions to understand the benefits of new technologies on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving human well-being through adaptation to climate change,  improving resource security and limiting environmental damage. Also it will enable technology providers to create the business models for successful transfer to new city regions through public-private partnerships and enable access to capital.

Finance – COP21

Partnering to help implement the Paris Agreement 2016 – 2030

The Ecological Sequestration Trust with ICL and IIER, are building an open-source platform resilience.io which can be used to support the establishment of an Urban Development Investment Fund which can enable infrastructure and community projects to proceed and accelerate in city regions around the world to limit greenhouse gas emissions, adapt to climate change, protect the environment and improve water, food and energy resilience.

Risk and Resilience – COP21

Partnering to help implement the Paris Agreement 2016 – 2030

The Ecological Sequestration Trust is partnered with UNISDR, ICES, OASIS, ICL, IIER and PWC on building the open source tool resilience.io to enable risk sensitive public and private sector investments and adaptations to climate change to proceed around the World. The aim is to support building resilience through risk sensitive planning and implementation of Sendai  Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. Also to support enhanced international cooperation and complementarity of efforts to support countries to increase understanding of comprehensive risk management approaches.

Mitigation and Adaptation – COP21

Partnering to help implement the Paris Agreement 2016 – 2030

The Ecological Sequestration Trust is partnered with Future Earth Ltd., Cities Alliance, DFID, 100 Resilient Cities, UCLG, UNSDSN and  C40 to provide new open-source tools to reduce greenhouse gas emissions , adapt to climate change and protect the environment. We are working on demonstrating this approach in Accra, Ghana , Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia and Suzhou China and after these we plan to scale up across the World from 2019.

Implementing Paris, Sendai, SDG 2015 commitments – COP21

The Compact of Mayors is a huge cooperative effort among mayors and city officials to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, track progress, and prepare for the impacts of climate change. Currently 382 cities, representing 345,853,881 people worldwide and 4.7% of the total global population, have committed to the Compact of Mayors. These cities and others are also gearing up to implement Urban SDG Goal 11 to make their cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. The C40 cities network has shown that a third of decisions that affect global warming outcomes will be made in cities and if we carry on as we are, within 5 years we will have locked in enough carbon to create 2 DegC of global warming. Transformational change in cities is an urgent priority.
