  • Abstract During the past several years, the world has witnessed extreme disasters. It has been proven that we live in a high-risk society, and sustainable development may be affected. The International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction (IDNDR) and the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) have warned that we must establish effective measures of promoting sustainable development to recover from unprecedented disasters. Vulnerability to and resilience in the face of disasters are two aspects that continue to draw attention among researchers on this topic.
     We identify and analyze major concerns regarding resilience and compare the main ideas concerning resilience and vulnerability. By using suitability analysis, we examine the role that resilience plays in areas along the coast that are at risk of climate-related disasters. In addition, through suitability and policy analyses, we examine how the government and local policies enhance resilience
