Critical infrastructure resilience for a safer and better world

Working with uncertainty to gain more resilience insight

Halfway through 2020, and with the summer well and truly here in this part of the world, it’s time to take stock of Resilience Shift achievements since the start of the year. Xavier Aldea Borruel, Head of Operations, highlights progress in the first half of the year and our exciting plans for the autumn.

The case for change

At a time of dynamic global change and challenges, we need innovation and creativity to deliver the most resilient and sustainable solutions. We need to know that our infrastructure networks and services will be able to absorb, and quickly recover from, acute shocks and chronic stresses, and adapt to a continually changing world.

The Resilience Shift in numbers

“Resilience matters, at its simplest, because of the uncertainties we face. To deliver the right impact, we must continually check that we are doing the right thing. Who is this for, how will it make their lives better, and what do they want? Our outputs must have quality and substance, developed with rigour to be of real value for all those working to improve the resilience of critical infrastructure.”
