100 Resilient Cities

Source: http://100resilientcities.rockefellerfoundation.org/

“BUILDING RESILIENCE is about making people, communities and systems better prepared  to withstand catastrophic events – both natural and manmade – and able to bounce back more quickly and emerge stronger from these shocks and stresses. There’s no doubt: natural and manmade shocks and stresses will continue to hit the world’s cities. The cost of urban disasters in 2011 alone was estimated at over $380 billion. IT’S TIME FOR CITIES TO ACT.”
