Making Cities Resilient 2030 (MCR2030) welcomed its newest members at an official ceremony at Mongolia’s Parliament House. The event re-emphasized the ongoing need for scaled up disaster resilience action in an era of escalating climate risk, the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction reports.

Mongolia’s Head of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Major General Ariunbuyan. G. said it was important to strengthen the capacity of local governments and maintain a strong coordinated national-local approach to address such a challenging riskscape.
