South Florida Mayors commit to a more resilient Greater Miami and The Beaches partnership with Rockefeller Foundation's 100 Resilient Cities

MIAMI (December 15, 2017)

On Monday, December 18, the Mayors of Miami-Dade County, the City of Miami, and the City of Miami Beach will convene for the first time to discuss the work to-date of Resilient Greater Miami and the Beaches (Resilient GM&B) and commit to continued intergovernmental cooperation and resilience as key shared priorities for the region. The event will also serve as the official welcoming to the 100RC program for the two new Mayors leading the Cities of Miami and Miami Beach.

Resilient GM&B is a collaboration formed by Miami-Dade County, the City of Miami and the City of Miami Beach to respond to urbanization, globalization and climate changes, among other challenges, in the region. After a competitive process, RGM&B was selected to join 100RC in 2016. Through the program, the county and cities receive technical support to develop a Resilience Strategy that reflects the region’s collective needs and its capacity to address them, along with the support and services to implement that vision.
