In an era rocked by climate change and other disruptions, our cities must be resilient to survive and thrive. But what does that mean, exactly? How can we address the problems facing cities today—poverty, job loss, crumbling infrastructure, pollution—while preparing for an uncertain tomorrow? In 2016, the Island Press Urban Resilience Project collaborated with some of the country’s leading resilience thinkers to produce a wide-ranging series of articles, op-eds, and blog posts that sought answers to these challenging questions. A compilation of this work is now available in this e-book Resilience Matters 2016: Sustainable, Equitable Solutions.
