As members of the 100 Resilient Cities Network, cities receive grant funding to hire a chief resilience officer (CRO) to work directly with city leaders in developing a city Resilience Strategy. The strategy, designed with support from 100 Resilient Cities, helps cities plan for more integrated solutions to the challenges posed from globalization, urbanization, and climate change – including important social and economic impacts.

100 Resilient Cities is now looking to the future with aims to bring the movement to 1,000, then 10,000 cities.
