The Collaborative for Urban Resilience and Effectiveness (CURE) is conceptualized as a global collaborative to mobilize talent, knowledge and experience across disciplines, colleges/universities, community organizations, cities and corporates to drive inclusive urban prosperity, innovation and development. CURE brings unique opportunities to better understand the impact of local, contextual factors that shape resilience building, and contribute to the creation and implementation of evidence-based strategies to enhance urban resilience and effectiveness.

 

 

Impact and work

The work of CURE began in 2016, when faculty from UBC-Sauder, Yale University, Yale University, The University of Ghana, Indian Institute of Management, and Tec de Monterrey developed and launched, in partnership with Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities Initiative (100RC), a learning platform focused on urban resilience for students in the Global Network for Advanced Management – a network of 30 universities across 27 countries.

Collaborations

Partnerships are crucial to facilitate the convergences of knowledge and expertise to address the pressing global issues of our time such as those called out in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.  Indeed, addressing UN Sustainable Development Goal 11 “Making cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable” requires collaboration across disciplines, institutions and continents. Partnerships with the system-of-systems that cities are can help facilitate the creation of pedagogical programs in which teams of students from multiple disciplines can learn about complex systems, and about working across boundaries.
