Resilience Shift round-table: City-scale modelling

Related to our work on tools and approaches, we want to understand where city scale models fit in to changing resilience in practice, and what the gaps are between theory and practice.

The third of the Technical Advisory Group’s round-table series for the Resilience Shift took place on the 24 and 25 January 2019 at the Centre for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) at UC Berkeley, California.

The event focused on the role of city-scale modelling and simulations in improving system-wide infrastructure resilience.

It was very useful for the Resilience Shift as it provided a unique opportunity to unite academics with the public and private sectors. There were insightful discussions on the use and application of modelling tools to support infrastructure resilience. Several participants reported that there are few such opportunities for academics and infrastructure operators to interact directly and engage in such productive exchanges.

Our recommendations from this round-table set out suggestions for future action to advance the resilience agenda, and are set out in this report.
