Resilience Planning With Cities
Our multi-city programs support cities with developing their urban resilience plans.
The Resilient Cities Network supports member cities with the development of their city resilience strategies. We use a participatory approach that is led by the city’s Chief Resilience Officer.
The process begins with an assessment that identifies risks and vulnerabilities within the city, using the city resilience framework and the city resilience index. The city then selects the shocks and stresses that they intend to address and develops a plan within the resilience strategy.
These strategies are meant to guide cities in becoming more resilient to acute shocks such as natural disasters, infrastructure failures or acts of terror; and stresses such as systemic inequality, lack of affordable housing or poorly maintained public transportation.
