 Summary:
 Building urban resilience is an extremely complex task, highly depending on given circumstances. Each specific constellation of risks requires corresponding solutions, which illustrates at its best the complexity of the tasks that local urban planners and policy makers are facing today. Understanding and learning from different successful cases could be a way for the planners to learn how to deal more effectively with specific situations. In addition to understanding its complexities, this article sets its focus on challenges for building urban resilience in Europe through the example of the Swedish most vulnerable city, where the most topical issue of climate change adaptation is successfully being implemented through its integration with planning policy.
