Abstract

In its search for 100 resilient cities, the Rockefeller Foundation has defined resilience as “the capacity of individuals, communities, and systems to survive, adapt, and grow in the face of stress and shocks, and even transform when conditions require it”. Singapore is among the 35 cities recently selected to join the 32 selected last year for its 100 Resilient Cities network. This issue of CITYGREEN continues to champion sustainability as well as its larger goal of resilience.
