Description: 

Resiliency is the ability of governments to withstand chronic stresses and acute shocks while maintaining essential services and recovering quickly and effectively. The Rockefeller Foundation is working with a small group of cities across the world to develop tools and techniques for cities to become more resilient, including in their budgeting and financial management offices. This session will describe the progress to date and what lessons practitioners have learned you can apply to your own government.
