100 Resilient Cities
Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Miami and Miami Beach, collectively as Greater Miami and the Beaches, have joined the final cohort in The Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities (100RC) group.
100RC is a $164 million effort founded by The Rockefeller Foundation in 2013, focused on helping cities around the world build resilience to the social, economic, and physical challenges of the 21st century. The cities and County are now members of a network sharing ideas and solutions to strengthen their ability to deal successfully with natural and manmade disasters and will receive technical assistance, services and tools to help solve local challenges around transportation, economic equality, sea level rise, aging infrastructure and more.
As members of the 100RC Network, Greater Miami and the Beaches will also receive funding and support for Chief Resilience Officers (CROs). Miami-Dade County’s CRO, James Murley, and Miami Beach CRO, Susanne Torriente, and the City of Miami CRO, Jane Gilbert, will work directly with County and city leaders to develop a joint resilience strategy. This strategy will reflect the region’s collective needs and its capacity to address them, and will identify the support and services needed to implement that vision. It also involves coordination with the other 32 municipalities in the region.
Additionally, 100RC provides access to partners in the private, public, academic and nonprofit sectors, who will offer tools and services valued at over $200 million – at no direct cost to the region – in areas such as innovative finance, technology, infrastructure, land use and community and social resilience.
