The 100RC Project Scan workshop is a rapid, multi-disciplinary collaborative assessment designed for multiple stakeholders to:
- Explore an initiative’s ability to address multiple shocks and stresses in a city.
- Explore the resilience qualities that an initiative currently exhibits and how they may be enhanced.
- Identify additional co-benefits that the initiative could deliver.
The 100RC Project San tool is based on methodology developed in collaboration with the city of Rotterdam’s Resilient Rotterdam team in 2017 and now been deployed and continuously optimized.
The Project Scan is designed to help cities assess the resilience qualities of projects and their contribution to a city’s overall resilience. Chief Resilience Officer’s and the Resilience Teams are able to apply this tool to analyze the alignment of initiatives to top shocks and stresses, and the resilience qualities. Then identify opportunities for specific project modifications to support city resilience.
In the workshop, participants explore how a wide range of shocks and stresses are relevant to the initiative and how it could better address them. From there, participants are posed questions related to the resilience qualities of the initiative. Teams must assess how well the initiative currently responds to each question and how the project would need to change to improve the answer.
The Tool leads the group to produce a number of ideas and new perspectives on how the initiative can improve its resilience value.
The workshop results in a consolidated report of the key Resilience considerations and appropriate next steps to build the resilience value of the initiative and as consequence the city’s overall resilience.
