• Understanding Risk Balkans Conference 2018

Savina Carluccio from Resilience Shift will be hosting a technical session at this World Bank conference providing examples of how resilience value can be delivered and resilience enhanced at different (spatial) scales.

Entitled ‘Enhancing resilience: from asset to city scale’, this will be a practical session on how risk fits into the wider context of resilience. The session will cover different scales of resilience from individual asset to city resilience:

City resilience, giving specific examples of implementation of the City Resilience Index – the first comprehensive tool for cities to understand and assess their resilience, enhancing their ability to build sound strategies and plans for a strong future

The World Bank Urban Rail Design Guidebook – Practical guidance on embedding resilience to climate and natural hazards in urban rail projects

Resilience of the Corridor X Highway Project and other infrastructure in the Western Balkans – measures taken to strengthen environmental and social performance

The Resilience Shift – a global initiative to re-orient professional practice from a focus on infrastructure as an asset, to a focus on infrastructure as part of a system that provides services under both ordinary and extraordinary circumstances and the role tools and approaches can play in enhancing resilience.

Presentations will be followed by a panel discussion and a feedback session
