Foundation backs ‘resilient’ cities
The Rockefeller Foundation is adding $64 million more to an already $100 million initiative that recognizes cities for their ideas on physical, social and economic resilience.
Foundation President Judith Rodin made the announcement Tuesday while launching the third and final round of the New York-based charity's “100 Resilient Cities” contest.
Sixty-seven cities have been named over the last two years. They range from Accra, Ghana, to Wellington, New Zealand.
