100 Resilient Cities: The Future of Resilience


8 Mar | Yumi Nishikawa from 100 Resilient Cities speaks about making cities more resilient, as we tackle the biggest challenges of future cities of urbanisation, globalisation, and climate change.

Urban Resilience is the capacity of individuals, communities, institutions, businesses, and systems within a city to survive, adapt, and grow no matter what kinds of chronic stresses and acute shocks they experience.

As we look to tackle the three biggest challenges: urbanisation, globalisation, and climate change of future cities, 100RC supports cities build resilience to tackle social, physical, and economic challenges of the 21st century.
