UNISDR facilitates city-to-city learning in collaboration with support from partners. Sharing lessons is a key part of UNISDR's Making Cities Resilient Campaign towards the implementation of the Sendai Framework at the local level. City-to-city learning is an advantageous opportunity for cities to connect and share experiences, obtain support and create an effective network to increase their urban resilience capacities. The ability to innovate and tailor solutions to particular conditions experienced in cities is strengthened and enriched by the sharing and exchanging of knowledge with those that have experienced similar problems and conditions. It is with this purpose in mind that UNISDR, with the support of the European Commission’s DG-DEVCO, is calling for the submission of proposals for city learning exchanges on disaster risk reduction and resilience building among local governments.
Three fully-funded City-to-City learning exchange opportunities are available. Each exchange includes a maximum of two local authorities and therefore six in total are to be selected. Further information is detailed in the document attachments.
