The Chief Resilience Officer (CRO) for the City of Houston leads the city’s partnership with 100 Resilient Cities – Pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation. The CRO leads city-wide resilience-building efforts to help Houston prepare for, withstand, and bounce back from the “shocks” – catastrophic events like hurricanes, floods, and cyberattacks – and “stresses” – slow-moving disasters like aging infrastructure, homelessness, and economic inequality, which are increasingly part of 21st century life.
