Resilient Cities

The ‘City Resilience’ theme of the IGI investigates the drivers of urban distress and the conditions for securing city resilience, with a focus on global cities that are undergoing transitions. The theme investigates resilience at different levels of analysis: individual; community; city; national. Drawing on the team’s multidisciplinary expertise of global cities, as well as expertise of technical, social and institutional systems, the research re-assesses the concept of resilience and its measurement; applying our analysis to key city sub-systems.
