Abstract

The purpose of this study is to build city resilience of the coastal urban system to tsunami. To explain the basis concept of city resilience, Phuket Province in Thailand was selected as a case study. The study aims to explore how 2004 tsunami affected communities and how a wide range of institutions at national to local scales took actions to recover Phuket after 2004 tsunami event. The study expresses resilience of Phuket by adopting benchmarks from characteristics of ideal community resilience and adapting those benchmarks to the local context. As the results, the study found that land use policies, economic activities, and institutional adaptive capacities were crucial elements contributing to the city resilience. Urban diversity strategy formation and land use ordinances with a concern on environmental problems could enhance stability of urban system and those could buffer effects of tsunami.
