Cities on the Frontline: Data for Climate Action: The Resilient Sydney Platform
Australia’s recent experience of intense bushfires, storms, flooding and heat is driving increasingly urgent city action to address the climate emergency. The Resilient Sydney Platform has enabled city-wide transparency of risks and opportunities, and growing accountability for tangible action on the ground. Launched in 2019, the Platform hosts data, visualizations and tools to enable 33 city governments to understand the key environmental impacts in their communities. The tools are hosted in a user-centred program with a focus on the engagement and training of government officers. Join us in our 11th session Cities on the Frontline Speaker Series 2022, jointly organized by Resilient Cities Network and the World Bank, to learn more about what Sydney is doing to create a new generation of environmental and social accountants to evidence and report on investments for resilience and climate action.
This session will feature Monica Barone the CEO of the City of Sydney and member of the R-Cities Board of Directors, Beck Dawson the Chief Resilience Officer for Resilient Sydney, Bruce Taper, the Founder and Director of Kinesis and David Holden, the Director of Kinesis.
