The wellbeing of the world's vast global population relies daily on a web of institutions, infrastructure and information. Uncertainty and pressure – caused by food, water and energy security, climate change, disease, economic fluctuation, urbanisation and social unrest - all pose challenges to urban living.

The ability of cities and communities to deal with associated shocks and stresses is also known as resilience.

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.
