This study aims to design a strategic spatial planning model for urban resilience through the establishment of the concept of mixed network governance systems that integrate hierarchical and horizontal spatial dimensions. Fostering urban resilience in the face of environmental, socioeconomic, and political uncertainties and risks has become a prior concern in planning sectors. Historically, a large part of resilience-building has depended on fragmented actions made by a unity local decision maker; however, the adaptive cycle that responds to threats occurring in urban spaces operates through multidimensional spatial interactions among neighboring regions. Thus, maximizing synergy effects by policy cooperation and collective decision-making to actually foster urban resilience is imperative. Our results are fourfold. First, this study constructs the conceptual framework to strengthen urban resilience aided by bibliometric analysis. This conceptual framework includes a process that brings together multiple local governments and spatial units to constitute appropriate methods for fostering urban resilience. Second, this study develops measuring indicators and a measurement model for urban resilience. By conducting confirmative factor analysis, this study measures environmental, economic, and social resilience levels for 232 regions in Korea. Third, this study constructs mixed network governance systems and finds the potential property and vulnerable element for each network governance boundary area. Fourth, this study designs a strategic model and spatial planning inventory by network governance system types. In this step, this study applies a method of creating detailed spatial planning tools for each network governance system. From our results, insights into how the process of building urban resilience can create a dialogue across a range of multiple local governments and stakeholders that have an interest in sustainable urban and regional development have emerged.
