1. From a resilience theory perspective, in what ways can a city’s resilience to disasters be
defined and measured?
A city’s resilience to disasters be defined and measured in terms of the persistence of
systems and their ability to absorb any change or any disturbance and at the same time maintain
the same relationships between the people residing in the city, which is the total population, and
the state variables (Joerin, Shaw, & Krishnamurthy, 2014). DRC Tutorial Paper.
Resilience theory is one of the sociological theories that have found a great footing in
urban planning. The tenets of resilience theory posit that the presence of one or more protective
factors can greatly reduce the impact of adverse exposure. The two critical factors for resilience
are risk and protective factors in place. DRC Tutorial Paper. This means that the more protective factors that are put in
place, the more resilient something or somebody will be……………
