Resilient Atlanta Survey

What is "100 Resilient Cities"?
In 2016, the City of Atlanta was selected to become part of 100 Resilient Cities (“100RC”) program pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation. The goal of the project is to develop and implement a City Resilience Plan in 2017 and we need YOUR feedback!

Resilience is the ability of individuals, communities, institutions, businesses, and operations within a city to adapt, function, and thrive no matter the kinds of sudden shocks or chronic stresses each experiences. Sudden shocks can be one-time disruptive events, such as storms and flooding. Chronic stresses can be longer term vulnerabilities such as income disparity or crime.

Over the next month, the City would like you to weigh in on what factors you feel affect our community’s resilience. Your feedback will help determine the City’s resilience-building priorities moving forward. The survey has three brief parts and should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. We deeply value your input - thank you!
