Resilient City Infrastructure Network

A collaborative environment to explore an integrated systems approach to planning city resilience

Providing city planners and developers with access to innovative tools and knowledge-sharing platform that support a systems approach to planning urban resilience.

Meet and discuss resilient infrastructure planning with peers from other cities and share common challenges and experiences. Learn how a systems approach to city planning can help you build on the strengths of existing infrastructure to increase productivity, build resilience, and reduce the need for infrastructure investment by up to 40%

Resilient City Infrastructure Network is a cities-led project, delivered by Resilience Brokers in partnership with Imperial College London and supported by EIT-Climate KIC and ICLEI

Who can join the Network?

Municipal customers, city decision makers and developers from any European city are invited to join the network and participate, free of charge, in all scheduled events and activities. Please note that workshop spaces are very limited. Register your interest as soon as possible to maximise your chances of securing a place.

Ways to get involved

Knowledge Sharing platform

A platform that facilitates connectivity and helps to build momentum and action within the Network. Its purpose is to encourage information exchange and strengthen collaboration to create a knowledge community and to help scale the solutions. You can join conversations by topic, share, find and access case studies, tools and resources successfully used by fellow practitioners across the Network.
