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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
