"The world is more densely populated and more interconnected than ever before. From extreme weather to refugee crises, from disease pandemics to cyberattacks, today’s state of play requires new models of governance to mitigate risk and respond to challenges.

This report shares 100RC’s knowledge about what it takes to catalyze an urban resilience movement."
