Dana Omran has been appointed managing director Africa of 100 Resilient Cities.

Michael Berkowitz, president of 100 Resilient Cities, announced the appointment in a statement on Thursday.

The organisation, pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation (100RC), helps cities around the world become more resilient to the physical, social, and economic challenges that are a growing part of the 21st century.

According to the statement, until recently, Omran served as associate director, city and practice management at 100RC, overseeing the strategy development process in North and East Africa, and Paris, France.

In her new role, Omran is expected to lead the organisation’s strategic vision in the region, and spearhead a new wave of action in the 100RC African portfolio.

 

“Some of the fastest rates of urbanization over the next 30 years are expected to take place in Sub-Saharan Africa,” Omran said.

“This represents an enormous opportunity to infuse resilience thinking in urban centers small and large across the continent.

“From informal development to water insecurity, waste management to unemployment, applying an urban resilience lens has been proven to yield multiple benefits through singular but holistic interventions.”

Berkowitz said about Omran: “During her tenure at 100 Resilient Cities, Dana has demonstrated exceptional leadership, decision-making ability, and both global and regional acumen.

“We are excited to see the great potential of the Africa region unfurl under her leadership, and expect to welcome a new cohort of both skilled Chief Resilience Officers and actionable City Resilience Strategies over the coming year.”
