Global Forum on Urban and Regional Resilience

The Global Forum on Urban and Regional Resilience (GFURR) was active from 2014-2022

GFURR brought together university researchers and partner organizations to facilitate conversations about patterns and processes of urbanization and regional development, with a special emphasis on the long-term resilience of places and communities. The particular focus of the Forum was the evolutionary and transformational resilience of cities and the way that places adapt – or not – to flows of capital, people, resources, and ideas.
