Bringing together practitioners in the creation, communication and use of disaster risk information.

CRP hosted a 3-day workshop for eight metropolitan municipalities in South Africa on resilient project preparation. The workshop explored the tools and know-how needed to design resilience informed capital projects, including how resilience through an asset can be addressed along with the basic economics of an investment. 

The third annual South Asia Hydromet Forum (SAHF III) on November 15-18, 2021, will examine how pooling data, resources, and information can improve weather and climate services as the region adapts to climate change. The event is organized by the World Bank, Regional Integrated Multi-Hazard Early Warning System for Africa and Asia, and Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery, with support from the European Union, World Meteorological Organization, and UK's Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.

The event will provide an inside look at our new catalogue of NBS for urban resilience.

CRP hosted a 4-day multi-country workshop dedicated to the Europe & Central Asia (ECA) region. The workshop gathered representatives of 14 cities from Albania, North Macedonia, Turkey and Uzbekistan and engaged them on the early stages of the project cycle. Participants developed an understanding of capital project priorities that integrate resilience into the delivery of strategic urban infrastructure. 

On the occasion of the 2021 Annual Meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund, a discussion on how the World Bank Group can work with countries, local governments, and other partners to support cities in making affordable, green, and resilient housing available for all.  By Invitation only.

This event is co-organized by the European Union (EU), the Organization for African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) and the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR).

CRP presented its work on geospatial planning and the use of satellite data in a webinar hosted by the Lahore University of Management Sciences. Leveraging satellite data and transforming it in compelling interactive maps helps CRP to communicate effectively with decision-makers on their urban resilience challenges and how to best address them.   

Mark your calendars for the virtual launch event to collectively celebrate the monumental accomplishment and availability of the International Guidelines on Natural and Nature-Based Features for Flood Risk Management. The event will be live-streamed on YouTube – integrating a live host with recorded guest speakers, imagery from the document, a keynote address, and a live web-ex panel.

The development of the guidelines was initiated and led by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) as a part of its Engineering With Nature® (EWN) Initiative, with the support of GFDRR and the World Bank.
