City Resilience Program (CRP)
Supported by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) and the World Bank Group, the City Resilience Program (CRP) was launched as an effort to assist city governments to build greater resilient cities with the financial and technical capacity to prepare for, mitigate, or prevent adverse impacts of disasters and climate change.
CRP helps cities design investment projects and mobilize extra financial resources to achieve urban resilience and it focused on refining its approach and structure to be most effective in channeling technical and financial support to cities. As a result, CRP established two support tracks that run in parallel: Resilience Enhancement and Capital Mobilization
A broad coalition of experts accompanies each city-level engagement from design to implementation to ensure a risk-based, integrated and comprehensive approach. Private capital experts support cities to develop a pipeline of resilience-building investments and expand the ﬁnancing options available to them. At present, CRP includes 7 investment projects and covers 45 cities. 12 cities are working with financial advisors, 14 technical solutions groups are integrated for project support and 50 private capital diagnostics have been completed.
