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.
From Laurie Mazur (Urban Resilience Project) to NHMA: “We wanted to thank you for working with the Island Press Urban Resilience Project last year, and to let you know that your articles have been included in a new e-book compilation, Resilience Matters 2016: Sustainable, Equitable Solutions. Thanks to grant support from the Kresge and JPB Foundations, we’re able to distribute this e-book for free online—so please share widely! We plan to share the e-book with our institutional partners, including the Congress for the New Urbanism and the American Planning Association, and to make it available to some 20,000 libraries across the world.”
