Today, over 60 million people worldwide are fleeing their homes; an additional 20 million people are being displaced by extreme weather events, and tens of millions more are migrating to find opportunity. While reasons for moving vary, most migrants settle in urban areas, creating different challenges for their new homes.
Mass migration is rapidly changing our world, and our cities need to embrace integration to successfully address these new challenges and seize the opportunities they bring for building urban resilience.
That’s why 100 Resilient Cities worked with Chief Resilience Officers, partners, and expert organizations to provide cities with international best practices, innovative tools, and practitioner resources.
Through creative solutions, cities can successfully integrate new arrivals while also improving their infrastructure, services, and governance systems. In doing so, they can become better places to live for all residents, in both good times and bad. Migrants can help strengthen communities, making them more resilient to whatever challenge a city faces next.
