My journey to provide and scale support to city regions to meet Global Goals by 2030

In 2008 I was working in Arup, heading up their global planning business with a world class team of transport, environmental, urban and policy and economics experts. Before that I had worked in infrastructure design and delivery, particularly Public Private Partnerships, around the World and I was also an adviser to the Mayor of London Ken Livingstone on his Sustainable Development Commission and so I was very aware of the challenges of achieving improved city resilience.

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.

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.  

Moving from agreeing Global Frameworks and visionary Goals to changing the way we all live

By Peter Head, Founder and CEO The Ecological Sequestration Trust

I was in New York City for Climate Week and the UN General Assembly (UNGA) meeting on 25th September when the 17 Global Goals for 2030 were signed by 193 countries. It was a very moving and emotional week as well as a productive one and now I am back in London, there is a little time to reflect.

A Momentous Week

Five years ago I could see in the work of my brilliant planning team in Arup that human development needed to make a radical course correction. I called the destination the ‘Ecological Age’ and the process Sustainable Development. At that time, the Millenium Development Goal (MDG) of reducing extreme poverty was being approached quickly around the world, with China playing a major role with it’s incredible development programme. It was clear, however, that we were starting to breach the limits of the Earth to support this fast track change, with resource depletion, pollution and ecological destruction. The science suggested truly awful consequences of this path, as population grew to around 10bn by 2050, with climate change making it increasingly difficult to provide adequate supplies of food and water. I met a great number of young people around the world motivated to support change, but without the means to make it happen.

Britain’s most successful megaprojects

“Just last month, the London-based Ecological Sequestration Trust signed a collaboration agreement to deliver inclusive resilient growth for the people of Mongolia. Moving from big projects to big-picture sustainability, the trust has developed resilience.io, an open-source, cloud-based regional platform, which gathers satellite and Earth observation, open-government and crowd-sourced economic, social and environmental data together in one place, in an understandable visual format.

Collaboration agreement to deliver inclusive resilient growth signing with the City of Ulaanbaatar

03/07/2015, London – Mayor and Governor of Ulaanbaatar, Bat-Üül Erdene and Professor Peter Head CBE, Founder and Chief Executive of The Trust sign a Memorandum of Understanding, in the presence of Prime Minister Chimed Saikhanbileg of Mongolia, to work in partnership delivering smart, resilient and sustainable development for the people of Mongolia.

The Trust, a UK charity, has been working in Ulaanbaatar since December 2013 supported by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) British Embassy of Mongolia and Future Earth Ltd to create an integrated, urban-rural, systems data platform called resilience.io. This tool will enable cities to plan and evaluate the business case for investment in projects that bring improved human wellbeing, resource efficiency, clean energy and renewable technologies which restore ecological and freshwater systems and secure the production of safe food.
