Luxor Added To Rockefeller 100 Resilient Cities Initiative

Luxor joins a list of 37 cities expected to endure the inevitable and impending changes the future will bring.

Luxor has joined the ranks of The Rockefeller Foundation’s initiative, 100 Resilient Cities (100RC), giving the city access to funding in order to hire a Chief Resilience Officer, and over $200 million in services and support to develop the city's resilience strategy.
 
The Rockefeller Foundation describes, "100RC selected cities based on each city’s demonstrated commitment to building resilience in the face of the complex, multiform challenges of the 21st Century, along with strong mayoral leadership and commitment to the initiative."
 
It's been said that the 100RC programme is to empower cities to design, implement and manage proactive solutions to challenges. On a global scale, the challenges range from urbanization, globalization, and climate change. The obstacles these cities face can also be short-term shocks like natural disasters, and long-term stresses like sea level rise and cyber-security vulnerabilities.
 
Luxor is among 37 cities to join the global network along with Washington DC, Buenos Aires, Tel Aviv and Addis Ababa.
