The United Nations as well as the European Union are strongly committed in promoting a transitiontowards more sustainable and resilient cities. Indeed, they are increasingly affected by different types of threats,among which the natural ones such as earthquakes, fires, and floods (shocks) and climate variability (stresses).Cities are quite often unable to cope with the adverse effects of such natural hazards. This circumstance leads tothe need of introducing resilience-related criteria (besides commonly used sustainability indicators) in decision making processes. This paper investigates at which extent the inclusion of such new indicators, within multicriteria assessment tools for supporting the decision-making process by Public Administrations, modifies theprioritization processes of a given set of planned actions to be implemented in cities, which are based instead onthe above-cited commonly used indicators. The outcomes of the analysis demonstrated that the introduction ofresilience among the prioritization criteria significantly modifies the list of priorities established using onlysustainability indicators.
