Current study represents an analysis of urban metabolism and urban dynamics theory binding it with the resilience concept. This research aims to find links and interdependencies between these notions, identify gaps in the existing studies and formulate the problem to be solved at the further steps of research through the implementation of System Dynamics modeling. The initial insight in causal-loop diagram construction in order to illustrate the given dynamic problem has been made.

Keywords: resilience; urban metabolism; energy; system dynamics; sustainability.
