Resilience Shift primers are intended to be a brief document introducing the elementary principles of resilience relevant to an industry sector

Building resilience of critical infrastructure requires decision-makers working in different industry sectors to understand ‘what’ can be done, ‘why’ it should be done, and ‘how’ to put it into practice.

Our work to date has told us that key stakeholders are often either unaware of the value that resilience can bring or are constrained by a lack of resources or support in terms of how to embed and enhance resilience.

Resilience Shift primers are intended to be a brief document introducing the elementary principles of resilience relevant to an industry sector and are part of a body of knowledge, tools and approaches that the Resilience Shift is producing, funding, and curating, intended to help those responsible for the financing, planning, design, delivery, operation and maintenance of critical infrastructure systems to shift practice.

Primers are based primarily on in-depth face-to-face and peer-to-peer interviews of industry practitioners and policy-makers working to improve resilience.

“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.”
