Resilience First, the largest business-led membership not-for-profit with a vision to drive global resilience best practice at scale, is pleased to be part of a unique collaboration to co-create a Summary for Urban Policymakers (SUP) that presents the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessments in targeted summaries that can help inform action in cities and across businesses.  A cross-selection of industry members from Resilience First’s network have been invited to participate in the dialogues and we thank them for their invaluable insights.
