Who is Resilient Greater Miami & the Beaches?  Resilient Greater Miami & the Beaches is a collaboration formed in 2016 by Miami-Dade County, the City of Miami Beach and the City of Miami to respond to the region's challenges: urbanization, globalization and climate change, among others. After a competitive process, Greater Miami & the Beaches was selected to join the Rockefeller Foundation's 100 Resilient Cities program. The three municipalities representing Resilient Greater Miami & the Beaches have partnered to create a 20-year strategy.

What is Resilience? Resilience is defined by the 100 Resilient Cities Program as the capacity of individuals, communities, businesses and systems within a city to survive, adapt and thrive no matter what kinds of challenges they experience.  These challenges include not just acute “shocks” to a community such as earthquakes, fires, and floods but also ongoing “stresses” that weaken the fabric of a city on a day-to-day or cyclical basis such as poverty, long-lasting food or water shortages, and a poor transportation system.

How can you help? To understand the full range of challenges Greater Miami & the Beaches is facing, we need your input about the factors that threaten our community’s resilience, including our ability to prepare, survive and adapt to whatever challenges we may face. Your input will directly inform the priority issues that Greater Miami & the Beaches’ resilience-building focuses on.

We ask that you take 10 minutes to answer this questionnaire. The questionnaire is anonymous unless you choose to provide your contact information. We ask that you respond by March 31, 2017.
