Resilient DC

Mayor Bowser to Unveil DC’s First Resilience Strategy to Prepare for New Challenges

Sunday, April 28, 2019

(Washington, DC) On Monday, April 29, at 11 am, Mayor Muriel Bowser and 100 Resilient Cities will present the District’s first resilience strategy, Resilient DC, focused on preparing the city for new challenges and promoting actions related to inclusive growth, climate, smart cities, health, and equity.

The strategy is the result of a nearly two-year process of shared discovery that resulted in a deeper, cross-sector understanding of some of DC’s most important challenges.

Following the presentation, a panel of experts will explore the issues presented in Resilient DC and scale them up nationally.

Copies of the strategy will be available at the event and online.
