The interconnectedness of ports to multiple infrastructure systems means they are acutely well suited to the Resilience Shift approach of tackling whole-system resilience.
Resilience Shift Technical Director, Dr Juliet Mian, reflects on our progress this quarter and looks forward to the end of the year with news of Ports, the Brunel lecture and next steps for our work on urban water resilience.
The latest edition of the series will kick off on 2 December 2020 before travelling virtually around the world, exploring how the engineering community can deliver a carbon-neutral and resilient society by mid-century.
Resilience Shift’s work on Potable Water Resilience is back under the spotlight at the National Lifeline Utilities Forum in New Zealand.
This innovative project promises to make a real difference to resilience – find out more about its work, and join the discussion at its next workshop (27/10) on new adaptation measures
Resilience4Ports has launched its first industry roundtable, bringing together stakeholders from across the entire ports and maritime shipping value chain for a major scoping study.

The economic case for greening the global recovery
This new report on The Economic Case for Greening the Global Recovery through Cities, by the Coalition for Urban Transitions, supported by The Resilience Shift, sets out investment priorities for national governments post Covid to boost their economies today and progress toward long-term resilience and prosperity tomorrow.
The role of PPPs in enhancing resilience
Resilience value is different for public and private sector stakeholders, and PPPs create the potential for resilience value to be understood and realised by all those involved. This guidance note shares industry insights.
The role of public policy in enhancing resilience
This report is concerned with the role that public policy instruments, like regulation and standards, can play in embedding resilience in critical infrastructure systems, and highlights early innovations in critical infrastructure resilience policy.
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.”
