Resilience Brokers are here…
With new ways of thinking and co-creating, driven by the power of collaboration and the networked strengths of an outstanding group of individuals and organisations, working towards a common goal: the rapid transition to resilient development paths in all regions of the world, to set them on track to achieving the Global Goals and `Paris Agreement targets.
Resilience Brokers will provide communities with the tools and support they need to become resilient and able to withstand all emerging global challenges, and a chance to look forward to a better future: a future built on equality, justice, dignity, respect and shared prosperity for all.
This ambitious initiative will see the introduction of resilient development paths in 200 city regions worldwide by 2022. The Programme is designed to foster innovative forms of cross-sector, multidisciplinary collaborations.
Underpinned by resilience.io, the Programme will connect developers, innovators and technology providers, with city stakeholder demand and local communities for collaborative risk- informed investment and policy decision making. And to support efficient infrastructure and technology design and procurement to realise cost savings of up to 40%.
The five year Programme will allow us to complete the final development phase of resilience.io; build capacity for the deployment of the technology within collaborative laboratories (collaboratories); and to support the delivery of projects with a focus on city resilience and inclusive, green growth transformation across the 200 target city regions.
Resilience Brokers will then release the technology open source to trigger a rapid scale up, to 70% of all city regions in the world by 2030. The introduction of resilient development paths at this scale will support the achievement of the Global Goals and improve the lives of more than five billion people.
The Ecological Sequestration Trust and Resilience Brokers
Resilience Brokers Ltd is a company wholly owned by the Ecological Sequestration Trust (the Trust). It has been set up with the purpose of managing the delivery of the Resilience Brokers Programme. The Resilience Brokers brand –now part of the family of brands which includes resilience.io– will be consistently implemented across all Programme related communications going forward. We would also like to take this opportunity to introduce the resilience.io brand refresh, consisting of a logo refresh and incorporation of a new colour palette. The aim is to achieve a strong visual alignment across the brands, to ensure maximum impact of the Programme’s communications.
An important call to action
Resilience Brokers have started their journey to help the world and we are inviting more experts and networks to join us. Over the next five years we aim to support at least one demonstration region in each country that signed up to the Global Goals. We are actively looking for city regions with big resilience challenges to become demonstrators for our Programme.
