On the 2nd of December Belgrade, together with 34 more cities, was selected to the second round of the 100 Resilient Cities Challenge. Each city was asked to present a clear and compelling description of their major resilience challenges, how they are approaching and planning for resilience to decrease vulnerabilities, and how they plan to partner with us. After exhausting review of the applications, a panel of esteemed judges including African Develoment Bank President Donald Kaberuka, President and CEO of the Asia Society Josette Sheeran, and former President of Costa Rica José María Figueres, recommended the next set of 35 member cities.

The 100 Resilient Cities Challenge is dedicated to helping cities around the world become more resilient to the physical, social and economic challenges that are a growing part of the 21st century.
