On Friday 3 June 2011, at ICLEI’s „Resilient Cities 2011” Conference in Bonn, ICLEI’s Secretary General Konrad Otto-Zimmermann and GRF Davos’ President Dr. Walter J. Ammann have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for future close cooperation. GRF Davos in its capacity as a think tank in integrative risk reduction and disaster management will support ICLEI and its city members from a methodological perspective on how to systematically analyse, assess and mitigate risks, and to provide guidance and tools on how to evaluate and apply the most effective measures for risk reduction, disaster management, and climate change adaptation. GRF Davos and ICLEI also have agreed to closely cooperate in the organization of future conferences like the Resilient Cities or the IDRC Davos Conferences and to coordinate efforts on how to raise awareness and bridge gaps between politics – science – the private sector – practice – and the public at large.
