Future Ready Cities: Advancing Resilience Through Urban Digital Transformation
By R Cities & Visa

Cities that take a coordinated approach to digitalisation and resilience building are better placed to make progress at speed and scale, while withstanding the concurrent urban challenges of today’s reality.

‘Future Ready Cities: How can cities advance resilience through urban digital transformation?’ will highlight findings from a new study produced by Resilient Cities Network and Visa, showcasing how city governments around the world are coordinating digital and resilience strategies that catalyse context-driven progress.

Through case studies from top leaders in cities, the discussion will offer practical models for breaking down silos to achieve comprehensive urban policies and plans in cities systems that leverage both the power of digital payment solutions and resilience for cities that are future-ready. The study is part of the Future Ready Cities initiative which aims to provide actionable learnings, tools, and exchange opportunities for cities everywhere.
