AeroFarms Partners with 100 Resilient Cities, Rockefeller Foundation to Increase Food Security and Fight Climate Change
AeroFarms is proud to announce a partnership with the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities initiative.
100 Resilient Cities – Pioneered by The Rockefeller Foundation (100RC) helps cities around the world become more resilient to social, economic, and physical challenges that are a growing part of the 21st century. 100RC provides this assistance through: funding for a Chief Resilience Officer in each city who will lead the resilience efforts; resources for drafting a Resilience Strategy; access to private sector, public sector, academic, and NGO resilience tools; and membership in a global network of peer cities to share best practices and challenges.
Feeding a growing population while stemming the tide of climate change is a major challenge for cities all over the world and we are ready to offer our experience and expertise to the 100RC members.
AeroFarms joins a prestigious group of other “Platform Partners” that have committed to helping cities around the world prepare for, withstand, and bounce back from the ‘shocks’ – catastrophic events like hurricanes, fires, and floods – and ‘stresses’ – slow-moving disasters like water shortages, homelessness, and unemployment – that are increasingly part of 21st century life.
Platform partners are dedicated to providing 100RC network cities with solutions that integrate big data, analytics, technology, resilience land use planning, infrastructure design, and new financing and insuring products. Other 100RC Platform Partners include Microsoft, The World Bank, Ernst & Young, Siemins, Cisco, The Nature Conservancy, Save the Children, and World Wildlife Fund.
