Supporting partners

Resilient Cities 2017 is supported by: 

The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is responsible for formulating the principles and strategies of German development policy, which form the basis of cooperation with partner countries and international organisations. Sustainable urban development is recognised as a key element for achieving international development and climate goals and therefore constitutes a significant field of German development policy. BMZ is hence a very committed actor in the Habitat III process and actively contributes to shape the international debate on urbanization. - www.bmz.de

The Foundation for International Dialogue of the Savings Bank in Bonn promotes international exchange and cooperation in the UN City of Bonn. The objectives of the Foundation include promoting: international understanding, development cooperation, European integration and science and research in the fields of international politics and history. The Foundation pursues its goals by fostering the meeting of people and cultures. It therefore supports, in Bonn and the region, events and conferences with international participation.

In addition, the Foundation supports the activities of institutions and associations working for international understanding and dialogue between cultures.

IDRC funds research in developing countries to create lasting change on a large scale. To make knowledge a tool for addressing pressing challenges, IDRC:

  • provides developing-country researchers financial resources, advice, and training to help them find solutions to local problems.
  • encourages knowledge sharing with policymakers, researchers, and communities around the world.
  • fosters new talent by offering fellowships and awards.
  • strives to get new knowledge into the hands of those who can use it.

In doing so, IDRC contributes to Canada‚Äôs foreign policy, complementing the work of Global Affairs Canada, and other government departments and agencies. More information can be found here.
