Shared responsibility

No earmarked funds are available at UNISDR to sponsor projects and initiatives by cities and local governments as part of the campaign. Cities and their partners are expected to be self-supporting as they organize awareness-raising events, convene meetings and engage in planning on campaign objectives. UNISDR may consider specific proposals for co-funding and on an exceptional, case by case basis, if resources are available. UNISDR and campaign partners will work to convince national, multi-lateral and bi-lateral development organizations to give priority to urban risk reduction projects and funding. Information on such projects and funds will be shared on the campaign website. See the Handbook for financing options in chapter 3
