GLOBAL MIGRATION Resilient Cities at the Forefront

Like other urban pressures, migration also presents a powerful opportunity for building resilience. In September of 2016, eight 100RC Member Cities, with a broad range of experience absorbing migrants, convened in Athens to collaborate on migration as a key component of urban planning. Chief Resilience Officers (CROs) from Athens, Thessaloniki, Amman, Paris, Montreal, Los Angeles, Ramallah, and Medellin shared what they have encountered, both successes and failures, and worked together to put forward practical solutions. The cities also had the additional expertise of partners such as the International Rescue Committee, MasterCard, Esri, the International Organization of Migration, Welcoming America, the Brookings Institution, Mercy Corps, and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Global Migration: Resilient Cities at the Forefront reflects the Exchange’s cleareyed appraisal of the urban challenges of migration and the participants’ collective work to address and find opportunity in them. Organized into four visions, this document highlights best practices and pressing challenges, and concludes by emphasizing the need for cities to develop better local, national, and international partnerships to successfully integrate newcomers and build resilience that makes cities better for all residents.
