Through urban resilience building actions, we coordinate with city authorities to ensure that a city is smart i.e. addressing the vulnerabilities, concerns and issues of children and youth. Futuristic Innovations: ‘Technology Cottage of Resilience’ – Local Urban Disaster Management Resource Centre (U-DMRC) U-DMRC is an innovative concept. Technologies are shaping and re-shaping our future ways of living, communicating and defining our lives in cities, towns and villages. The technology integration into U-DMRC will help the small electronic cottage with dynamic technology incorporation. This electronic cottage must be at the heart of urban lives and in the schools right from very early stage.

  17. 17. 6th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2016 ‘Integrative Risk Management – Towards Resilient Cities‘ • 28 Aug – 1 Sept 2016 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Public Private Partnership (PPP) Imperatives In the face of multiplying disasters and every day risks, the investment in Integrated Resilience Building protects business investments, and harnesses skills and labor, as well as broadening economic growth by protecting investments and development projects, as well as targeting areas of low economic growth. 1. Platform Partnership enlarges the scope of impact in order to bring value to resilience building through sectoral and niche approach which includes children, gender, disability, etc. 100 Resilient Cities partnership with Rockefeller Foundation is a unique example in this regard. 2. Evidence Based Integrated Programme Partnership for urban risk management and resilience building. Partnership with C&A Foundation in 3 continents is enabling leadership and transformation for children and youth as well as mothers and others as champions for holistic impact, change and transformative processes. 3. Technical partnership – through studies, publications, piloting innovative concepts – such as City and Resilience study in Chennai after 2015 flooding. 4. Strategic / Transformative Partnership which impact ground level changes and policy, where in the vulnerable are given space and modalities to define and determine their own resilience is crucial.
