|Jamjoom, Hatoon Z.
|Urban resilience has come to play a central role in the new urban policy agenda, as well as in the academic literature on cities, urbanization, and links with disasters and climate change. Moreover, the emphasis on the participatory and communicative side of planning has grown in the past decade, and planners have developed various theories to empower communities and increase communication. However, to accomplish highly effective public participation programs that enhance cities' resiliency, a very good job of planning must be done. The real challenge is to design an appropriate program where the techniques match the purpose, reach the interested stakeholders, and result in a clear linkage between public participation and urban resilience. The goal of this study is to introduce a public participation tool that helps in expanding the Resilient capacity of the Saudi cities. This study used the concluded results from the previous theoretical and practical work as a reference to create a strong theoretical background discussing several aspects of the subject. Additionally, a conceptual proposal was designed relying on the research data analyses followed by the implementation phase of the proposal. Finally, the achieved results had been considered as the final project to improve the cities resiliency through public participation
