The purpose of multi-risk approach (MRA) is to take into consideration interdependencies between multiple risks, which can trigger a chain of natural and manmade events with different spatial and temporal scales. The purpose of this study, based on fieldwork in Naples, Italy and Guadeloupe, France is to understand correlation between multi-risk approach and urban resilience.
The originality of this research is in establishment of a link between MRA, including both assessment and governance, and urban resilience. In this paper, the authors take a holistic and systemic look at the MRA, including all stages of knowledge generation and decision-making. Further on, the authors develop recommendations on how an MRA can contribute to urban resilience.
