Abstract

For the past 70 years, the number of people living in cities around the world has massively grown, almost six times, from 751 million in 1950 to 4.2 billion in 2018. This growth will continue, with predictions saying that by 2050, about 6.7 billion people will be living in cities. To handle this growth well, there is a need for effective city management that can find a balance between what different people want and need. Understanding how to make our cities resilient, or able to bounce back from challenges, is a big part of this. The idea of resilience is about making sure cities can keep working well and that everyone living there, especially people who are often left out or at risk, can thrive. This is where the Urban Resilience framework plays a crucial role. It looks at the problems and challenges a city faces, how different parts of the city system interact, and how we can learn from what’s happening and then plan for the same. Resilience planning plays a crucial role in identifying and implementing effective processes and solutions. This study aims to provide an overview of various urban resilience frameworks and their practical applications in addressing urban vulnerability and promoting sustainability. By examining these frameworks, an attempt has been made to seek insights into effective strategies for building resilient cities and fostering inclusive, socially just, and sustainable urban environments.
