ABSTRACT: City diseases caused by rapid urbanization, as well as extreme weather and subsequent disasters caused by climate change, are the main causes of the current impact on urban security. And in coastal cities, waterlogging caused by heavy rain is the most frequent disaster. Urban resilience is an ability of the resistance, absorption, adaptation and recovery of city when it is disturbed. It is necessary to evaluate the resilience level of city, especially for specific disasters, which is of great practical significance and far-reaching strategic significance. First of all, this paper marshals the concept of urban resilience, discriminates the difference of synonyms, and on the basis, the index system to evaluate the level of resilience based on waterlogging is established. Then, the annual changes of Shenzhen's resilience level in the past 2005-2016 years are evaluated by using the Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and the SPSS software. The result shows that the resilience level of Shenzhen has little fluctuation in the research period, but it shows an overall upward trend. And the improvement of its resilience depends primarily on infrastructure that can resist waterlogging.
