Global climate change has led to a high incidence of extreme climate disaster events and cities have been subject to natural disasters and extreme weather since ancient times strongly influenced by their own high population and economic density bringing higher exposure and high intensity of man-made environmental modifications, which induce pregnancy and disaster environmental sensitivity, making them more vulnerable to extreme weather disasters when they occur the impact. Due to the uncertainties and potential crises that global climate change brings to urban development, the construction of resilient cities is becoming a hot topic of urban planning. The construction of resilient cities is a comprehensive action involving political, economic, cultural, social and ecological fields. The article provides a detailed review of the development of the concept of resilience and research related to resilient urban planning. The development of resilience theoretical frameworks in some regions has been quite mature, and the practice and application of resilience theory has also accumulated a lot of experience. The purpose of this paper is to analyze China's policies and strategies for interpreting the concept of resilience in the context of current cutting-edge resilience theory and practice. A resilience assessment and policy analysis is conducted for the city of Xiamen, which is typical of China and at the forefront of resilient city development. The paper explores the development of resilience theory in urban planning from a Chinese perspective. The paper uses a literature review, expert interviews and case studies.
