Resilience has been suggested as a new paradigm of disaster management which reduces losses against disasters under the uncertain circumstances. The purpose of this study is to define the concept and to set up the objectives of urban resilience for disaster management. The common concept and components of resilience were analyzed by examining recent studies on resilience. The resilience was defined as "a capacity of physical and social urban elements adapting and recovering against disaster for better condition" and the five objectives of resilience - Robustness, Redundancy, Resourcefulness, Rapidity, and Regional Competency - were derived from the review of literatures. The major disasters and accidents were analyzed focused on those objectives. The concept and objectives of urban resilience could be used as a guidance for disaster prevention planning and disaster management processes.
