100 Resilient Cities & Ayuntamiento de Santiago

100 Resilient Cities – Pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation – is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping cities around the world build resilience to the economic, social and physical challenges that are increasingly part of the 21st century. 100RC supports the adoption and incorporation of a view of resilience that includes not just the shocks—earthquakes, fires, floods, etc.—but also the stresses that weaken the fabric of a city on a day to day or cyclical basis. Examples of these stresses include high unemployment; endemic violence; or chronic food and water shortages. By addressing both the shocks and the stresses, a city becomes more able to respond to adverse events and is overall better able to deliver basic functions in both good times and bad, to all populations. Cities in the 100RC network are provided with resources necessary to develop a roadmap to resilience along four main pathways: Chief Resilience Officer, Resilience Strategy, Partners from the private, public and NGO sectors, Network of member cities.
