100 Resilient Cities
100 Resilient Cities - Pioneered by The Rockefeller Foundation (100RC) supports the adoption and incorporation of a view of resilience that includes not just the shocks – hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, floods, etc. – but also the stresses that weaken the fabric of a city on a day to day or cyclical basis.
New Orleans is among the first of the 100RC Network of cities, which are provided with the resources necessary to develop a roadmap to resilience along four main pathways:
Leadership: Financial and logistical guidance for establishing an innovative new position in city government, a Chief Resilience Officer, who will lead the city’s resilience efforts;
Guidance: Expert support for development of a robust resilience strategy;
Technical Assistance: Access to solutions, service providers, and partners from the private, public and NGO sectors who can help them develop and implement their resilience strategies; and
Global Access: Membership in a global network of member cities who can learn from and help each other.
The 100 RC Network
New Orleans was one of the first 32 cities to partner with 100 Resilient Cities and we are excited to welcome more partners to the network!
