Rockefeller’s climate resilience program said to be in jeopardy

Charitable foundation expected to end ‘100 Resilient Cities’

The Rockefeller Foundation intends to disband its 100 Resilient Cities initiative, the largest privately funded climate-adaptation program in the U.S., according to people familiar with the foundation’s plans who asked to be anonymous because they weren’t authorized to discuss the move.

The program was started by Rockefeller in 2013 to help U.S. cities — including Boston, Miami, New York and Los Angeles — as well as cities overseas prepare for threats related to climate change. Rockefeller pis said to plans to close the organization’s offices and dismiss its staff of almost 100 as soon as this summer.

The Rockefeller Foundation didn’t respond to requests for comment. Neither did 100 Resilient Cities, which operates as a separate entity.
