100 Resilient Cities

When diverse groups organize, share ideas, and communicate a cascade of benefits is often produced. When there is collaboration between agencies within a city, the integration of resources can make a dramatic impact on a city’s resilience.

"Pursuing greater collaboration and integration can have a dramatic impact on a city’s resilience. Every city’s take on these qualities differs, but it’s clear that when cities work together with their citizens, local businesses, and other stakeholders, promoting collaboration between agencies, results improve and have longer-lasting benefits. When diverse groups organize, share ideas, and communicate, decisions draw from a broader insight base, priorities are better aligned, and outcomes achieve multiple goals instead of one—often producing a cascade of benefits."
