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.  

resilience.io Specification Documents

The first phases of the resilience.io platform’s development involved the creation of a comprehensive set of specification documents. These documents have been summarised as follows:

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.
