The Regional Summit under the framework of the “100 resilient cities” program took place in Singapore between 12 and 15 July 2016. The summit received more than 50 delegates from 11 Asian-Pacific cities, 100RC Management Board and Platform Partners from Europe, Asia and America.


Siemens and 100 Resilient Cities – Pioneered by The Rockefeller Foundation (100RC), are cooperating in their efforts to make cities more resilient. Siemens has joined the 100RC Platform of Partners – working with other private companies and public organizations in helping cities, their people, communities and institutions prepare for, withstand, and emerge from the stresses and sometimes acute shocks caused by rapid urbanization, globalization, and climate change. 


Although considered one of the best cities to live in in Vietnam, also chosen as an attractive place to visit of the planet, the city of Da Nang is vulnerable to shocks such as storms, floods, droughts… and stresses such as water shortage, unemployment, and lack of basic service providing for community especially vulnerable people.

Extreme weather has led to significant consequences to the city in the past few years. Unpredictable high-intensity storms, floods and droughts have occurred frequently, causing extensive damage.



100 Resilient Cities – Pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation – is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping cities around the world build resilience to the economic, social and physical challenges that are increasingly part of the 21st century.

One critical step cities can take to facilitate their resilience building is to hire a Chief Resilience Officer (CRO). The CRO is an innovative position in city government that ideally reports directly to the city’s chief executive, and acts as the city's point person for resilience building, helping to coordinate all of the city's resilience efforts.

In the second Platform Partner Summit convened in the Bay Area of California, USA. Over 20 partners joined us to discuss how they can help cities in this regional cohort – Berkeley, Oakland, and San Francisco – strategize to achieve some of their resilience goals.

When confronted with a vexing challenge in the office or at home, one of my first reactions is to reach out to a trusted co-worker or friend to help problem-solve or generate new ideas. At 100RC we strive to create an environment where our Chief Resilience Officers (CROs) can do the same on a global scale, while leading resilience-building efforts in cities from Melbourne to Mandalay to Mexico City.
