The Urban Institute, with financial support from The Rockefeller Foundation, released an independent report of midterm findings in its multi-year evaluation showing that, in the five years since its creation, 100 Resilient Cities (100RC) is making important progress in helping urban areas around the world institutionalize and build resilience to a wide range of shocks and stressors.
The report, completed by the Urban Institute, finds that 100RC’s unique approach is leading to wider adoption of holistic resilience planning practices and the “de-siloing” of city operations to tackle social, economic, and physical challenges of the 21st century.
Key findings of the Urban Institute’s evaluation include:
- Membership in 100RC helps cities institutionalize resilience
- 100RC helps cities implement solutions
- 100RC’s model has a unique breadth and depth of engagement
- Lessons from 100RC have spread beyond the 100RC network
