The New York City Economic Development Corporation's (NYCEDC) projects and initiatives put the needs of people and communities first: it is investing in the good of the community, because it is NYCEDC's community too.
As a mission-driven, nonprofit organization that creates shared prosperity across New York City, NYCEDC's work is organized around four main areas of focus:
- Investing in neighborhoods to address longstanding community needs.
- Building a more sustainable city to meet the challenges of climate change.
- Creating workforce development opportunities to help New Yorkers succeed in 21st century industries.
NYCEDC's projects and initiatives are about serving New Yorkers. It is working with and for communities through every step of the economic development process—bringing emerging industries to the five boroughs; creating the spaces and facilities they need to thrive and create jobs; giving New Yorkers the tools and training to succeed in those jobs; and investing in the public infrastructure and neighborhood development projects that make New York City a great place to live, work, and do business.
Ultimately, NYCEDC strives to create a sustainable and resilient future, with shared prosperity and opportunity for all New Yorkers.
The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform allows stakeholders to inform the public about their work on DRR. The SFVC online platform is a useful toolto know who is doing what and where for the implementation of the Sendai Framework, which could foster potential collaboration among stakeholders. All stakeholders (private sector, civil society organizations, academia, media, local governments, etc.) working on DRR can submit their commitments and report on their progress and deliverables.
