Cities around the world are confronting profound opportunities and challenges represented by urbanization, globalization, climate change, and cyber risks. To be better prepared and respond to these opportunities and challenges, cities are adopting new alliances, partnerships, and citizen-inclusive approaches to planning, governance, operations, budget, climate change, and security. The overarching lens that unifies these issue areas is “risk” management, and in particular how city leaders, partners, and citizens, in increasingly integrated and technology reliant ecosystems, can “de-risk” urban environments, leading to more livable, resilient, and competitive places.
