Commitment to Action

100 Resilient Cities Centennial Challenge

Pioneered by The Rockefeller Foundation

Commitment by

The Rockefeller Foundation

In 2013, the Rockefeller Foundation committed to drive action towards building worldwide urban resilience through the 100 Resilient Cities Centennial Challenge (100 RC), which will be implemented over the course of five years. Each of the 100 cities will be supported in hiring a Chief Resilience Officer, gain membership to the 100RC Network, and be provided access to tools and resources. This commitment will be executed in partnership with Swiss Re (providing financial and technological contributions), the World Bank (providing access to financial services), and Architecture for Humanity and American Institute for Architects (sharing the capacities offered through their Regional Resilient Design Studios). Additionally, Palantir will join the commitment and will deploy their data fusion and analysis platform creating a resilience dashboard for each city. This partnership will launch with a pilot in New Orleans to test and refine the dashboard. The City of New Orleans will work with Palantir and the Rockefeller Foundation to refine the dashboard so that it is most useful for the 100 Resilient Cities once they are selected. The Rockefeller Foundation will actively engage further partners throughout the course of the 100RC to advance resiliency efforts within the following four areas: policy, community and social resilience, infrastructure, and technology.
