Priority 3 - Facilitate Planning for Resilience
Priority 3 focuses on strengthening risk-based resilience planning at island and city levels. This builds on MRC’s current role in the preparation of risk assessments using the Vulnurability Capacity Assessment (VCA) tool. The key strategy is to expand MRC’s coverage of risk assessments, to increase the utilization of these assessments, and data in local level planning, (in disaster management planning, adaptation planning, and local development planning) and to advocate for a national risk assessment guideline.
The priority specifically focuses on using climate forecasting in risk assessments and adapting risk assessment processes and data collection to urban contexts.
