This paper proposes a critical infrastructure interdependency analysis framework and illustrates its application in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. This framework leverages system-level and asset-level infrastructure analyses to illustrate potential cascading and escalating failures, as well as to identify and prioritise potential resilience strategies. The Puerto Rico case study also elucidates the elements and required conditions to operationalise critical infrastructure interdependency analysis in all phases of risk and emergency management, and in the broader perspective of long-term adaptation planning and sustainable development.
