100 Resilient Cities Report Details New Policy Recommendations

100 Resilient Cities, an initiative pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation that seeks to help cities become more resilient to physical, social and economic challenges, released a report last week to help metropolitan areas set a resilience agenda that includes both mitigation and recovery strategies. Safer and Stronger Cities: Strategies for Advocating for Federal Resiliency Policy was prepared with the help of Enterprise Community Partners and other organizations with experience dealing with various shocks and stresses that cities face. The report includes federal policy recommendations to address the barriers cities face when trying to improve the resilience of housing, economic development, public safety, and infrastructure. Cities and their partners will be able to use this report and the solutions it offers as a new framework to advocate for the resources and tools needed at the federal level to set an effective and sustainable resilience agenda.
