Esri blog Cities Prioritize Climate Resilience to Lure Businesses

April 12, 2021

Cities, which once wooed businesses by touting advantages like low taxes and a strong workforce, now must also show that they’re resilient to climate threats. Officials in Phoenix, Arizona, and Norfolk, Virginia, explain how location intelligence serves as a backbone of their resilience work.

Marianna Kantor, Esri’s Chief Marketing Office, wrote a blog that, among other subjects, deals with the business case for climate-resilient cities, GIS as the backbone of resilience work and climate resilience as a bridge to inclusive communities. Kantor is using Esri’s recurring tag ‘A Climate of Change‘, which leads to more related blog posts by WGIC member Esri.
