Resilient Sydney

City of parramatta

In 2015 Sydney won a place in the 100 Resilient Cities initiative pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation. 100 Resilient Cities provides technical support and resources for cities to develop and implement strategies to help them survive, adapt and thrive in the face of the challenges of the 21st century.

Resilient Sydney is a collaboration with all the councils of metropolitan Sydney and the NSW Government. Resilient Sydney is hosted by the City of Sydney. The team in Sydney includes a Chief Resilience Officer, Deputy Chief Resilience Officer and research support from a consultant team.

Resilient Sydney is making plans for Metropolitan Sydney – from the Hawkesbury in the north, to the Blue Mountains in the west, to Wollondilly and Sutherland Shire in the south. (See map in the documents library to the right).

In 2016 we conducted research and engagement to assess Sydney’s strengths, weaknesses and vulnerabilities. We used this information to identify the key challenges we need to tackle for our city to become strong, just and ready for anything. Throughout 2017 the Resilient Sydney team have conducted community and stakeholder workshops to gather ideas. These will form the Resilient Sydney Plan which will be launched later in 2017.

Resilience is the capacity of individuals, communities, institutions, businesses and systems within a city to survive, adapt and grow no matter what kinds of chronic stresses or acute shocks they experience.
