WAYS TO MAKE RESILIENCE TANGIBLE, PRACTICAL AND RELEVANT

This opportunity to create value comes by equipping experts and decision makers with the tools, approaches, technology, and educational practices needed to put resilience into practice. This requires clarity on the key concepts that matter to professionals, be they designers, engineers, asset owners, investors, or regulators. They need to know what to do differently on Monday morning if they want to enhance resilience of their work and with their work, whether on projects, investments or operations.

We aim to identify and assess the tools and approaches that contribute to enhancing the resilience of critical infrastructure; and make them accessible to those who will benefit.

HOW ARE WE DOING THIS?

  • Identifying available tools and approaches to enhance resilience and foster resilience-based design
  • Assessing current use of tools and approaches in practice(users profile and uptake, maturity, case studies)
  • Identifying how tools and approaches contribute to create value on the resilience value chain
  • Creating an accessible and searchable repository of tools and approaches for use by practitioners, with a global reach and vision, acknowledging that this repository will be 'live'
  • Identifying gaps and customer needs for new tools and approaches
  • Engaging developers of tools
  • Working with existing and potential users of tools

WHAT ARE THE OUTPUTS?

  • An open access, searchable and validated repository of tools and approaches to enhance resilience of critical infrastructure. Each tool/approach will include structured information e.g. description/purpose, what beneficiaries it is addressed to, value it aims to provide, relevant case studies.
  • Repository designed to allow “Trip Advisor” like reviews by users.
  • Reports presenting results from individual research projects, including gap analysis.
  • Materials from engagements with tool developers and users.
  • A graphic of the value chain for infrastructure services and short report with description and importance.
  • The value chain for infrastructure services graphic with tools and approaches mapped along it.
