Presentation: A set of Good Practices and Recommendations for Smart City Resilience Engineering and Evaluation

Aim of the paper is to report the scouting activities performed by some Members of the Italian Association of Critical Infrastructures Experts (AIIC), addressing the state of the art in the area of Smart City Resilience, with a special emphasis on the relation between “smartness” and “resilience”.
The justification for a Document dealing with urban resilience and smartness is clear: urban areas, the engines of economic growth, are projected to provide the living and work environment for two-thirds of the global population of close to 10 billion by 2050. The concepts of smart city and resilient city go hand in hand with each other and thus are interrelated.
The Document is primarily intended for use by organizations with responsibility for urban governance. However it is equally applicable to all types and sizes of organizations that represent the community of stakeholders, and in particular those organizations that have a role in urban planning, development and management processes in urban areas around the world.
The Document describes a framework and principles that want to be coherent with the entire UN Agenda 2030, in particular to goal 11 Sustainable Cities and Communities, to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
