The Urban Institute recently published a midterm evaluation of the 100 Resilient Cities program. The analysis aims at an independent review, though the report was achieved with financial support from The Rockefeller Foundation.

"The report, completed by the Urban Institute, finds that 100RC’s unique approach is leading to wider adoption of holistic resilience planning practices and the 'de-siloing' of city operations to tackle social, economic, and physical challenges of the 21st century," according to the "Institutionalizing Urban Resilience" report website.

"Moreover, the analysis found 100RC is among the first global urban initiatives to employ a consistent set of tools, supports, and resources across so many diverse cities for which no alternative exists," reads the text of the report summary.

[The report was released in December, so the news is a bit old by Planetizen standards. The continued relevance of the conversation about resilience required a place for this report in the news feed, however tardy our notice.]
