AMMAN RESILIENCE STRATEGY
In December 2014, Amman was selected to join the second cohort of the 100 Resilient Cities(100RC). As a member of the 100RC
Network, Amman receives technical support and resources from 100RC to develop and implement a City Resilience Strategy, including
hiring and engaging a Chief Resilience Officer (CRO) to work in the city government on resilience initiatives. In January 2016, Mayor of
Amman, Mr. Akel Biltaji, appointed engineer Fawzi Masad as CRO, a new position created to lead city-wide resilience building efforts.
