resilience.io Resilience Brokerage Fund Launch – Cleanequity Monaco 2017

 

 

Scott – “Resilience.io – Resilience Brokerage Fund”

Run alone and you may run fast

Run together and you will run far

My name is Scott Williams, and together with my collaborator Stephen Passmore, we are here today to bring resilience.io to life for you and invite you to join us on our inspiring journey ahead using our plan, Roadmap2030 [hold up copy of Roadmap2030] to guide us

Our mission is to provide the tools to optimise decision making for planning and investment in resilient city development, and accelerate the selection and financing of the best available clean technologies

Today we are offering investors and innovators the first opportunity to invest in our Resilience Brokerage Fund to help complete the development of the resilience.io platform and to deploy it across the world

Global to Local Scale, Human, Economic, Ecological, Systems Modelling – Thinkdif Open Mic Session

Stephen Passmore and Peter Head of The Ecological Sequestration Trust are joined by Bob Bishop of the International Centre for Earth Simulation to discuss our pioneering project creating Global to Local Scale, Human, Economic, Ecological, Systems Models for an Open Mic Session as part of the Thinkdif Disruptive Innovation Festival 2016, under the topics Systems Reset and Regenerative Cities.

resilience.io WASH Sector Prototype – Local Advocacy

We were overwhelmed by the response we got to our resilience.io app on our recent visit to debut it in Accra (GAMA), Ghana. Thank you so much for all your kind words, encouragement and support.

RSA – Scaling For Impact

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.

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.

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.
