Collaboration with 100 Resilient Cities intended to improve preparation for climate crises

Resilience

With the goal of enacting resilience strategies across the world, the Urban Land Institute (ULI) has announced a partnership with 100 Resilient Cities – Pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation (100RC) as a part of their Platform of Partners. The partners provide cities with tools to prepare for, endure and come back from events like hurricanes, fires and floods, as well as ongoing issues like water shortages.

“In an increasingly complex and challenging world, cities need partnerships with organizations such as ULI to withstand the shocks and stresses of the 21st century,” says Michael Berkowitz, President of 100RC. “By providing advisory services to our network cities, ULI is leading by example and is helping to build a global resilience movement.”

As a partner with 100RC, ULI will provide resilience guidance with its Advisory Services program and Technical Assistance panels. Through these programs, ULI helps with community building practices that preserve the environment, improve economic prosperity and promote better quality of life.

“We are excited to be a 100RC partner, as the goals of the program align well with ULI’s efforts to improve community building worldwide,” says ULI Global Chief Executive Officer Patrick L. Phillips. “ULI has an 80-year track record of helping cities reinvent themselves to be more resilient, livable and successful, and we look forward to bringing the institute’s tradition of knowledge sharing to the program.”

Cities in the 100RC network receive four types of support:

  • Financial and logistical support for establishing a new position in city government (e.g. Chief Resilience Officer) to lead resilience efforts
  • Technical support for a resilience strategy
  • Access to solutions and resources to help develop and implement resilience strategies
  • Global network of peers to help each other and provide support
