Our programs

Our programs

Core to our mission at the Resilient Cities Network is our belief that for cities to become resilient, they must channel investments to solutions that maximize impact for every dollar spent. High-impact solutions yield multiple benefits such as more equitable access to basic services, better employment, and climate-resilient infrastructure. R-Cities works arm-in-arm with cities to scale resilience and investments in vulnerable communities and the critical systems that serve them through multi-city thematic programs.
