We Focus on Impact
Cities face an uncertain future, and we're helping them prepare.
Progress towards our mission
- City Action
- Resilience Solutions
- Local Leaders
- Global Influence
We provide funding, capacity building, and technical assistance to help cities change the way they understand their risks and plan for their futures. We partner closely with cities as they hire a Chief Resilience Officer, develop a holistic resilience strategy, and most importantly, implement the projects identified in their strategy.Read More
We are building an urban resilience marketplace, comprised of a diverse network of industry leaders and service providers from the private and non-profit sectors which compliment our global network of cities. We connect cities to the partners who have the solutions they need, and ensure new solutions are created where necessary.Read More
We cultivate and empower local leaders to serve as resilience champions and experts. Working with local stakeholders, we deliver trainings, share best practices, solve problems, and collectively build the global movement for urban resilience.Read More
We inspire and influence global thought leaders, policy makers, and financial institutions to incentivize and support resilience building, in our cities and around the world, by proving the value of resilience and amplifying work being done on the ground.Read More
Our Approach to Measuring and Evaluating ImpactWe capture learnings and track impact in three ways. When combined, we hope the resulting lessons and insights will help advance the work of urban resilience practitioners around the world.
External researchers: The Urban Institute and a series of global partners are conducting an external evaluation of our partnerships with cities and industry leaders over the next five years.
Internal Monitoring: Regular tracking of program activities and outcomes helps us drive toward success and course correct when there are important lessons to apply to our program and partnerships.
City Reporting: Regular reporting directly from our cities allows us to identify regional and other trends, learn together, and apply cities’ experiences of success and challenges.
