During the last decade, the concept urban resilience
–the capacity of a city to recover after a shock– is becoming popular. And with reason, as confirmed by the United Nations, which asserts that "Globally, 80 per cent of the largest cities are vulnerable to severe impacts from earthquakes, 60 per cent are at risk from storm surges and tsunamis, and all face new impacts caused by climate change". In this context, the start-up Opticits proposes a web-based tool allowing cities and corporations to anticipate these challenges. That is what Ignasi Fontanals, its co-founder, has told us.
