In April 2014, Glasgow was named as one of the first 32 members of the Rockefeller Foundation's 100 Resilient Cities (100RC) Network (a $100million initiative). Glasgow's membership in the network represents a major step towards creating a strategic, multi-agency approach in proactively managing the inevitable challenges, shocks and stresses the city faces.
Through membership of the 100RC Network, Glasgow is developing a Resilience Strategy that will act as a roadmap to greater resilience, as we look further into the 21st century. The strategy is being developed with reference to the four essential dimensions of urban resilience: Health and Wellbeing, Economy and Society, Infrastructure and Environment, and Leadership and Strategy.
In September 2014, Alastair Brown was appointed as Chief Resilience Officer to lead on Glasgow's resilience efforts. The Resilient Glasgow Strategy is being directed in collaboration with the people of Glasgow including our residents, businesses and pubic sector partners.
Supporting the Chief Resilience Officer is the Resilient Glasgow Team. To speak to one of the team, please email Green Glasgow
