This book presents and discusses methodological approaches and operational tools aimed at increasing the awareness and skills necessary to face the social, economic and environmental challenges usually encountered in spatial planning. In addition, it deals with the concepts of risk and resilience from both a theoretical and operational point of view. The book promotes a better understanding of risk, resilience, and related notions such as vulnerability, fragility and anti-fragility in urban and landscape studies, while also analyzing new planning policies. Accordingly, it will benefit all researchers and public decision-makers looking for an interdisciplinary approach to risk and resilience.
