Sam Kernaghan is Director of Resilience Program at the Committee for Sydney.

Over the past 20 years, Sam has worked with more than 50 cities across Asia, Oceania and the USA to build community, infrastructure and institutional resilience to shocks and stresses – risks that are being intensified by climate change, urbanisation and globalisation.

Sam has led the development and implementation of climate and disaster resilience programs with the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities, the Asian Development Bank, and with State Governments from New York to NSW.

At global design consultancy Arup, Sam was instrumental in designing and testing resilience frameworks including the city resilience index with the Rockefeller Foundation and characteristics of safe and resilient communities with the International Red Cross.
