Enhancing urban resilience with multi-hazard early warning, urban risk communication and flood resilience measurement digital tools

This webinar aims to present the three tools developed and supported by the IFRC and its partners and how they can be used in strengthening urban resilience: IFRC Alert Hub Initiative aims to protect lives and livelihoods by increasing the use of the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP), which is a standard ITU format to issue multi-hazard early warning alerts communicating key facts of an emergency. The IFRC is developing a free online platform that aggregates all published CAP alerts from official authorities worldwide. WhatNow Service is a global platform of the Red Cross Red Crescent to disseminate localized actionable messages on how people can safely prepare for and respond to local hazards. These key messages are nationally adapted and especially relevant to urban context. These messages can be linked to CAP alerts for alerting authorities share RCRC ‘what to do now’ messages with the public when a hazard hits. Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities comprises two parts: a) the Alliance’s framework for measuring community flood resilience; and b) an associated web-based tool for implementing the framework in practice. These tools are open to cities and stakeholders who are interested in taking the MCR2030 journey.
