Planning for Disruption, Promoting Resilience
What are the infrastructure demands and who are the stakeholders needed to be engaged to be a resilient city in the 21st century? How can cities prepare for, prevent, or most effectively respond to the natural and man-made disasters our cities will face? How can local, national and international agencies better coordinate to improve resilience and security?
