Resilience Strategy

Resilience is the capacity for 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.  Shocks are sudden, sharp events that threaten a city such as hurricanes, coastal flooding, infrastructure failure, cyber-terrorism, heat wave, and disease outbreak. Stresses weaken the fabric of a city on a daily or cyclical basis such as pronounced poverty, overtaxed and underdeveloped transportation system, aging infrastructure, lack of affordable housing, rising sea level and coastal erosion. These are issues well known within our region and through resilience planning, the City of Miami Beach will ensure that they are each addressed within our existing and future actions.
