Abstract: Increased complexity in managing and recovering from the stresses and shocks threatening the world’s population has led to an interest in policy development for resilience. There are many discussions on developing resilience through integrating different strategies in development plans and disaster management plans. Lately, the attention has been shifted to understand the city’s inbuilt resilience to bounce back from different shocks and stresses. The overall objective of this paper is to assess the resilience of a city using resilience profile and the city resilience index. The paper also examines the applicability of indicators used in developed countries for measurement of Resilience in India’s context.
