The case for change

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.”
