"Urban Resilience is the capability of the city to bounce back after any stroke or stress due to natural and man-made traumas. Miami is vulnerable to climate change and sea level rise. Port Miami is economically successful than South Beach Miami and equally under risk area. Sea level rise is threatening the function of Port Miami. As per FIMA Dodge Island Miami is predicted to submerge in next ten years. The city must be prepared and resilient for the flood and storm surge predicted. Urban Resilient strategy will sustain the existing infrastructure and neighborhood without affecting the future. The research emphasis the capability of Dodge Island Miami to function from ten years to fifty years. Coastal resiliency must be implemented in every coastal city as they are maximum prone to natural disasters. Using the GIS data and records of FIMA, this thesis focuses on appropriate resilient strategy to face the sea level rise."
