In recent years the number of people affected by flooding processes increases up to the point where the organisational structure of urban communities threatens to experience the significant direct and indirect damages. The vulnerability to flooding processes due to sophisticated assets is high and the assessment of flood resilience becomes the main direction to follow within integrated flood risk management. This paper takes a first step in bringing resilience in integrated flood risk management through a framework that is employing five dimensions in order to evaluate the level of disturbance and ability to preserve and functioning during and after the flooding processes on one side and connected with the flood risk management cycle on the other side. The method recognises different scales and functions within the urban system. The application is done on city of Nice taking into account existing flooding processes, economic, social and institutional characteristics.
