A city in distress. What do you need? More resilience. It sounds so easy. Urban resilience is a relatively recent policy concept – the ability of a city to recover from chronic or sudden upheaval – that is rarely teased out in media reports of urban disasters. This panel will help define exactly what resilience is, what components of physical and social infrastructure are critical to urban recovery, who pays for it, and how resilience is measured before and after upheaval. Join these front-line practitioners for a lively discussion of resilience in action.
