The City Resilience Framework establishes:
- An accessible, evidence-based definition of resilience
- Four aspects of resilience (health and wellbeing, economy and society, leadership and strategy, systems and services)
- Twelve indicators by which resilience can be understood
The research brings together evidence and knowledge from over 150 sources of literature, 14 city case studies and fieldwork in six cities. The fieldwork drew on the input of those in government, businesses and civil society groups in Semarang (Indonesia), New Orleans (USA), Concepción (Chile), Surat (India), Cali (Colombia) and Cape Town (South Africa).
