Surat’s resilience rests on our people and our ability to live well in good times and bounce back stronger than ever from the inevitable hard times.
Developed with input and insights from the people of Surat, the Resilience Strategy is designed to articulate solutions that make our city more resilient not only to physical challenges, such as floods and aging infrastructure, but also to social challenges, such as cohesion and urban health. Surat’s Resilience Strategy is the launch point for several programs that foster these connections and partnerships. These programs will enable community-based organizations to serve as hosts for training and conduits to services that are tailored to meet the needs of people. These programs are an example of what the practice of resilience looks like—it addresses more than one challenge at once and creates multiple benefits for many people.
