Resilience is defined as the capacity of individuals, communities, institutions, businesses, and systems within a city to survive, adapt, and grow, no matter what kind of chronic stresses and acute shocks they experience. In 2016, O‘ahu voters approved a City Charter Amendment to create an Office of Climate Change, Sustainability and Resiliency. Several months prior, Honolulu was selected into the third and final round of the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities (100RC) network, joining global cities in addressing pressing 21st century challenges around climate change, urbanization, and globalization. Participants will be introduced to the Office and its charter mandate; learn about approaching resilience through assessing and addressing shocks and stresses, including early identified challenges and short-term actions already taken; and contribute to the Office’s perceptions assessment through a live interactive survey.
