In 2013 Island Press launched the Urban Resilience Project (URP) with support from The Kresge Foundation and The JPB Foundation. The project is working to imagine and inspire the sustainable, equitable, resilient cities of the future. URP brings together lading thinkers with a broad range of expertise to generate and cross-pollinate ideas . Island Press shares those ideas in a variety of media – books, articles, interviews, webinars, and educational courses. URP content has appeared in The Guardian, The Huffington Post, Salon, The Hill, Grist and many other online and print publications.
Resilience Matters is a product of the Island Press Urban Resilience Project. It is a compilation of short-form articles advancing a holistic, transformative approach to thinking and action on urban resilience in the era of climate change, grounded in a commitment to sustainability and equity.
