The Making Cities Resilient campaign addresses issues of local governance and urban risk while
drawing upon previous UNISDR Campaigns on safer schools and hospitals, as well as on the sustainable urbanizations principles developed in the UN-Habitat World Urban Campaign 2009-2013.
- Know More: Raise awareness of citizens and governments at all levels of the benefits of reducing urban risks.
- Invest Wisely: Identify budget allocations within local government funding plans to invest in disaster risk reduction activities.
- Build more safely: Include disaster risk reduction on participatory urban development planning processes and protect critical infrastructure.
Since its launch in May 2010, the MCRC had served as a means to support the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA), 2005-2015, at the local level. It will now carry on through to 2020, supporting the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2015-2030) at the local level, with its seven targets and four priorities for action.
