Greater Miami & the Beaches  is a unique collaboration among Miami-Dade County, City of Miami Beach and City of Miami created to respond to global trends major metropolis’ face: urbanization, globalization and climate change. In the Spring of 2015, after a highly competitive process, Greater Miami and the Beaches was selected to join 100 Resilient Cities.

Urban 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 and acute shocks they experience.

Resilience planning is about making a city better, in both good times and bad, for the benefit of all its residents and visitors, particularly the poor and vulnerable.
