Covid-19 epidemic has created new challenges for the development of smart and sustainable cities. It has been proven that it is not anymore sufficient just to focus on providing services for quality of life, or for a better business ecosystem. We need to prepare cities so that they can manage, maintain and ensure city services and enhance the quality of life in the face of hazards, shocks, and stresses. According to this definition, resilience not only includes earthquakes, fires,
floods, etc. but also anything that disrupts the operation of a city either occasionally or periodically. Examples include health epidemics, high unemployment; endemic violence, etc.
