Resilient Cities Connect


Resilient Cities Connect (RCC) is a platform where cities, development partners and businesses can exchange their knowledge, services and capacities to increase the local resilience of people, public services and businesses.

The Education & Training section lets one discover solutions, ideas, services and resources that build capacity to reduce risks and increase resilience. These contribute to the process by which people, organizations and society can stimulate and develop capacities to achieve social and economic goals, including through improvement of knowledge, skills, systems, and institutions.

The Risk Identification & Assessment section offers solutions, ideas, services and resources that provide, or contribute towards approaches that determine the nature and extent of risk by analysing potential hazards and evaluating existing conditions of vulnerability that together could potentially harm exposed people, property, services, livelihoods and the environment on which they depend.

The Critical Infrastructure section offers solutions, ideas, services and resources that provide ways in ensuring that within natural hazard induced disaster contexts, physical structures, facilities, networks and other assets support services that are socially, economically or operationally essential to the functioning of a society or community.

The Forecast, Monitoring & Alert Systems section allows one to discover solutions, ideas, services and resources that make up interrelated sets of capacities needed to generate and disseminate timely and meaningful warning information to enable individuals, communities and organizations threatened by a hazard to prepare and to act appropriately and in sufficient time to reduce the possibility of harm or loss.
