Resilient cities have the ability to absorb, recover, and prepare for future shocks to their economic, environmental, social, and institutional services. Resilient cities promote sustainable development, wellbeing, and inclusive growth.

Cities face a growing range of challenges in the 21st Century. The effects of climate change, growing migrant populations, inadequate infrastructure, pandemics, cyberattacks, and more. Resilience is how cities adapt and transform in the face of these challenges, and prepare for both the expected and the unexpected like the coronavirus pandemic.
