According to the Urban Resilience Project in an era rocked by climate change and other large-scale disruptions, our cities must be resilient in order to survive and thrive. But what is known about urban resilience, and what remains to be explored? To help answer those questions, Island Press launched the Urban Resilience Project (URP) in 2013, with support from The Kresge Foundation and The JPB Foundation.

In the years since, URP has worked to imagine and inspire the sustainable, equitable, resilient cities of the future. We bring together thought leaders with a broad range of expertise to generate and cross-pollinate ideas. And we share those ideas in a variety of media—books, articles, podcasts interviews, webinars, and educational coursework.
