We Focus on Impact
Cities face an uncertain future, and we're helping them prepare.
Our mission is to catalyze a global urban resilience movement. We deploy four key strategies in pursuit of this mission.
We partner closely with cities as they hire a CRO, create a holistic resilience strategy, and most importantly, implement it. We provide funding, capacity building and technical assistance to help cities change the way they understand risk and plan for the future.
We seek to build an urban resilience marketplace. To do that, we are building a diverse network of global industry leaders and innovators from the private and non-profit sectors to match our diverse network of cities. These partners deliver solutions to cities and collaborate to create new services and tools where necessary.
By proving and sharing the value of resilience solutions, 100RC seeks to inspire and influence global thought leaders, policy makers, and financial institutions to incentivize and fund resilience building—in our cities and around the world.
To be successful, local leaders must serve as resilience champions and experts, and galvanize support among stakeholders and residents. We partner with CROs and local leaders to deliver trainings, share best practices, solve problems, and collectively build the resilience practice—with the larger goal of generating collective action toward resilience building.

Impact Stories from Around the Globe
Our Approach to Measuring and Evaluating ImpactWe capture learnings and track impact in three ways. When combined, we hope the resulting lessons and insights will help advance the work of urban resilience practitioners around the world.
External researchers: The Urban Institute and a series of global partners are conducting an external evaluation of our partnerships with cities and industry leaders over the next five years.
Internal Monitoring: Regular tracking of program activities and outcomes helps us drive toward success and course correct when there are important lessons to apply to our program and partnerships.
City Reporting: Regular reporting directly from our cities allows us to identify regional and other trends, learn together, and apply cities’ experiences of success and challenges.
