Toughness, elasticity, and the ability to recover quickly from difficulties; that is the meaning of resilience in a nutshell. Developments such as climate change, digitalization, the new economy, and globalization bring new opportunities and risks. Cities that are able to anticipate and respond to these dynamics are best placed to tap into growth opportunities.

The Resilience Strategy focusses on future-proof city solutions like implementing clean and reliable energy, Cyber resiliency, Climate Adaptation to the next level, future proof Infrastructure and social resilience.
