The Alliance for Resilient Cities (ARC) is a unique gathering of urban stakeholders committed to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals through collaborative local area action. ARC organizes collaborative activities, training and research for youth and interested entities to innovate solutions to catalyse resilience in cities and settlements. ARC strives to document and share resilience based research and identify pathways that would enable the implementation of transformative approaches to achieve urban resilience with the iNagrik. ARC uses a participatory approach by providing all stakeholders the iNagrik mobile application and the Quantified Cities Movement realtime platform to report local situations and collaborate to identify sustainable and resilient solutions. 

ARC will serve as a common platform for all stakeholders to access, explore and share effective resilience strategies via new paradigms, technologies, economic models, risk reduction techniques and capacity building.
