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.
The Cities Alliance and UK Department of International Development (DFID) have launched a major new partnership initiative to support African cities as they transform themselves into resilient, inclusive centres of economic growth.
As part of the initiative, we are also establishing the resilience.io platform, a highly innovative new planning and investment decision-making support tool that is being developed by The Trust.
Peter Head, Stephen Passmore and Catherine Allinson present a visioning piece on The Trust and resilience.io’s plans in Accra for the Cities Alliance.
The Trust is delighted to introduce this first resilience.io
We believe that by using integrated systems thinking and collaborative intelligence, transformational change is truly within the reach of communities, businesses and governments globally.
This report introduces resilience.io. It is a tool that allows city-regions globally, to assess their current development path and map out a more sustainable and resilient trajectory. It is intended for use for planning, investment and policy-making, to embed resilience within city-regions and help deliver the post 2015 Sustainable Development Goals.
Building on the successful implementation of the feasibility study ‘Supporting Resilient High Quality Growth in Mongolia’ conducted earlier this year, the British Embassy is supporting The Trust in its deployment of INUA Radar Screening Methodology in Mongolia which will enhance both the strategic planning capacity and capability of Mongolian leaders to deliver smart sustainable objectives, especially for the city of Ulaanbaatar…
