Global leadership for the climate resilience movement
National and Global Security
Without collective action, the world is at risk from catastrophic damages caused by hurricanes, floods, fires, droughts, and other extreme weather disasters. Cities, businesses, and civil society must join forces, before disasters strike, to save lives, protect infrastructure, preserve essential services, and bounce back stronger.
Cities and Critical Infrastructure
A member-driven alliance with a systems approach, putting cities and infrastructure in the foreground, is the key to a winning strategy. Resilient, sustainable infrastructure projects are the sinews of a nation’s economic power.
Public - Private Partnerships
Government alone cannot build climate resilience. The private sector is a vital partner. ACRE will bring together all levels of government to foster collaboration with business sectors, associations, and civil society. The power of partnership ignites the innovations and breakthroughs of rising civilizations.
Culture of Preparedness
Since the challenges and threats are universal and can befall any individual, community or region, so the solution requires a new sense of unity to build a more resilient society.
Building a more resilient national character and a stronger citizenry is an educational task that involves all levels of society and strengthens the fiber of a people.
A Bias Towards Action
Resources are too scarce, time is too short, and the challenges too big to rely on solutions that are not scalable, replicable, and additive. Investments, insurance, legislation, technologies, data, standards, and ecosystems all have a role in a shared vision for a better world.
Principles of Cooperation
A siloed world cannot solve this intertwined, complex problem. A spirit of cooperation must prevail across many networks, systems, disciplines, and institutions. (Read more)
