Resilient Rotterdam is a programme of the city of Rotterdam that works on a resilient and future-proof city. Such a city is capable to resist a crisis, to recover from it fast and to move forward stronger.


The corona crisis hit hard. We learned a lot during this crisis. Resilient Rotterdam helps to inventory and share, locally and internationally, the experiences and lessons learned. In order to become more resilient and future-proof as a city, we also utilize current transitions such as the energy transition, digitization, globalization and the new economy.


Cities that are able to respond to these transitions can seize growth opportunities. We also anticipate opportunities and risks of new developments by, among other things, remaining in dialogue with various parties such as companies, (knowledge) institutions and the Global Resilient Cities Network. Rotterdam is a delta city, therefor climate resilience will always be high on our agenda.
