Abstract


The concept of city resilience exists as a response to various problems that are often faced by governments. Several cities in Indonesia, such as Jakarta and Semarang, have formulated urban resilience strategies in preparation for dealing with various shocks and pressures. Some of the city's problems that include shocks are floods, fires, earthquakes, social unrest, and disease outbreaks. Meanwhile, city's problems that include pressure are congestion, waste, pollution, and limited city infrastructure. Currently, all major cities in the world are facing a global pandemic of the Covid-19 virus. The impact of this pandemic has paralyzed socio-economic activities globally. The concept of city resilience is not yet fully prepared to face the global pandemic of Covid-19. For this reason, this study aims to identify and describe the form of urban resilience policies in Indonesia in the face of the global pandemic of Covid-19. This study uses a descriptive qualitative method approach in collecting and analyzing data related to the implementation of urban resilience policies in Indonesia in the face of the global pandemic of Covid-19. The results show that cities that have a city resilience strategy will be better prepared to resolve various city problems where the concept of city resilience plays a role in reducing the impact of risk on the community. In the face of a global pandemic such as Covid-19, the concept of city resilience still needs to be refined to reduce the extent of the socio-economic impact that is detrimental to the community.
