Rome’s resilience journey

Rome is struggling to reverse decades of poorly regulated development and address its informal housing neighborhoods, inadequate infrastructure provision, and sprawl. These have made Rome highly vulnerable to flooding and other disruptions, which threaten to undermine social cohesion and prosperity in a city of immense cultural and economic significance.

Rome’s city limits include large expanses of still viable rural land and natural reserves, and its forward-looking planners are focused on transforming these assets in order to maintain and protect its environment, and to build long-term resilience to shocks and stresses.
