The Resilient Cities Network builds on the legacy of the 100 Resilient Cities initiative. In partnership with our global community of cities and Chief Resilience Officers, we continue to deliver urban resilience through knowledge sharing, collaboration, and collective action, seeking to inspire, foster, and build resilience around the world.
The Global Steering Committee represents member cities at the regional and global levels, and provides the platform for a city-led network. The GSC has a clear mandate to set the principles and policy of the network as directly driven by and responsive to the needs of the member cities.
The Resilient Cities Network continues to drive urban resilience action with an expanded partner base. Between 2020 and 2022 we will welcome up to 10 new member cities working to protect vulnerable communities from climate change and other urban challenges.
Spread across four regional hubs (Europe, Mexico, Singapore, and the US), the Resilient Cities Network staff provide deep regional and global expertise in urban resilience. Every member of our global team contributes to R-Cities’s mission of building a safe and equitable future for all.
We leverage the power of our partnerships with the resilience goals of our member cities through four pathways: Thematic Action, Knowledge and Impact, Network Scale, and Investments. We rely on the support of diverse partners: NGOs, foundations, corporations, and governments.
