Our Technical Director, Dr Juliet Mian was interviewed by CIHT for their series of CIHT podcasts on infrastructure resilience. This episode is relevant to today’s global events as the world looks to respond to, and be resilient to, Covid 19, the global pandemic.
We shared the lessons learned from a global resilience exercise based on a wide-scale power outage – a ‘black sky’ event. What can we learn from simulating a catastrophe and how does it help us to build cross-sector resilience?
“This year we put you in the decision-making seat – you have to choose what to do, and then follow that path. It’s going to be a very unique environment to work through.”
Highlights of Cape Town: Day Zero captured. Testing your resilience to black skies. And looking forward as the water community gathers in Stockholm.
The all sector global resilience exercise EARTH EX starts on 21 August 2019, register now to prepare your organisation and your family for a ‘black sky’ event.
Critical infrastructure resilience was put to the test using the Earth Ex simulated disaster event, exploring how interdependencies work in practice.
