Tools for resilient infrastructure workshop – New Orleans

The Tools and Approaches project, part of the Resilience Shift activity ‘Making resilience tangible, practical and relevant,’ aims to identify, assess and promote adoption of the tools and approaches that contribute to enhancing the resilience of critical infrastructure, making them accessible to those who will benefit.

The project delivered a series of three workshops focused on tools and approaches to explore ways and means of implementing critical infrastructure resilience.

The workshops brought together users (decision makers, influencers and practitioners) with a role in operation and maintenance of critical infrastructure with developers of tools and approaches to enhance resilience.

Each workshop explored tools needed at different stages of the value chain for critical infrastructure .

The following hypotheses of the ‘Tools and Approaches’ project were put to the test at the workshops:

  • A platform of some kind would drive adoption of resilience tools by connecting users to the tools they need and developers to potential users.
  • A community around resilience tools to provide the necessary support and stimulate dialogue and collaboration.
  • A value-based approach can be useful to help stakeholders on the critical infrastructure value chain to focus their resilience implementation thinking and efforts.

This report summarizes the key learnings from the New Orleans workshop.
