Resilient cities

Cities in Australia are facing a series of challenges as they grow. At this Grattan seminar, Neil McInroy, Chief Executive of the Manchester-based Centre for Local Economic Strategies, discussed how cities and communities cope effectively with such challenges. The Centre has recently laid out a “place resilience framework” to enable local government and other sectors to work together to develop a resilient economy. The framework has been piloted in 15 locations in the UK with fascinating results.
