Creating a national model for resilience and innovation requires special skill in finding, assessing, and making agreements with qualified private partners. We will use our global network of clients, projects, and business relationships to alert private investors to the unique opportunities offered by the City of Newport.
Nationally and globally, cities are racing against time to become more resilient by bringing together the public, private, and non-profit sectors to develop resilience approaches that serve multiple functions. Newport’s Resilience Hub reflects this innovative and multi-pronged approach for preparing today for tomorrow’s climate and economic challenges.
Resilience enables cities to bounce back “quicker and stronger” from disasters, manage chronic challenges (like infrastructure funding), and withstand climate change. By bringing together Newport’s civic leadership, the private sector, and other community institutions, resilience strategies can also strengthen the local economy.
