Los Angeles’ Resilience Journey
Los Angeles is one of the most complex megacities of the world, with a population, geography, infrastructure, and economy comparable to those of states and nations. While the city limits cover 469 square miles, Greater Los Angeles is 10 times that size – a region of individual neighborhoods that comprise many different languages, cultures, and ethnicities.
The city’s central question is how a city of LA’s size and scope can truly be sustainable and resilient in a changing and increasingly globalized world, particularly in the face of water shortages and seismic challenges.
