 The “100 Resilient cities” program (100RC) and Da Nang city have begun the resilient strategy development process. So what is resilient strategy? Why should we need to develop resilient strategy and what are its benefits? This article aims to share the basic knowledge about this issue to the readers.



City Resilience Framework (100 RC)

1. What is resilient strategy?

Firstly, it is a strategy reflecting the current situation and future vision. It is designed by global experts and learnt from experiences of sucessful city members of 100RC. This process uses City Resilience Framework to analyse and study about resilient capacity and strengths as well as limitations of a city.
Resilient Strategy Process is to empower stakeholders, raise awareness as well as build support for a program to build resilience.

2. Why should we need to develop resilient strategy?

The city needs to plan for the future, but these plans are often not comprehensive and only focus on shocks and pressures. Meanwhile, developing a resilient strategy can have more a comprehensive review of strengths, limitations, risks and opportunities of a city, thus this stratey could help a city to develop a holistic and comprehensive plan for the future. At the same time, development of resilient strategy process is one of the required commitments of the cities participating in the 100 RC.
