What is resilience?
We at CGRS believe that resilience is about people. It is about ensuring that people will always have a reliable source of clean water and food, uninterrupted energy, and a home and workplace that doesn’t wash away, regardless of the changes in climate. This security is key to a society’s overall well-being and happiness. We believe that complex global challenges can only be solved by teams of creative and innovative problem solvers and decision makers. That’s who we are.
