The 100 Resilient Cities network identifies in their report “A Practitioner’s Guide to Measurement Challenges and Opportunities ” several initiatives from around the world that measure social cohesion and to better understand role in the development of urban resilience.
Among the ideas presented, our project on the Local Soup initiated by the CDC Centre-Sud is an example of a measure of social cohesion. The 100 Resilient Cities identify the City-ID’s Social Capital Measurement Guide as one of the references to be consulted by practitioners.
For the achievement of this project, we worked closely with the CDC Centre-Sud, the Maison de l’innovation sociale (MIS) and the Office of the Transition and Resilience of the City of Montréal. This project was funded by the Maison de l’innovation sociale (MIS) and Mitacs.
