<p>David Dixon: Resiliency is important to me because environmental resiliency is going to capture a lot of attention and a lot of investment. And I want to marry that attention and investment to an urban agenda. A resilience agenda should be an urban agenda.</p> <p>You know, let's not protect cities that can't compete, that are forcing their poor out to distant suburbs, that have outdated transit systems. Let's use the fact that we now are going to worry about rising sea levels and drought and protect ourselves from this, and spend a lot of money, let's use that money to make our cities more livable, greener, more environmental responsible also.</p> <p>Every dollar spent on resilience, should be a dollar spent on building community.</p>
