As part of our work to set up the Resilience Shift, we undertook a series of one-to-one interviews, focus group sessions and a global survey with Arup members. The Resilience Shift’s (former) Executive Director, Dr Nancy Kete, said, “The Arup survey has taught us a lot about the ‘state-of-the-practice’ in design and engineering for resilience […]
This post discusses the potential barriers to collaboration across infrastructure sectors.
During the first year of the RS, as part of an agenda setting stage, we consulted with Arup to get views on current practice in critical infrastructure resilience. This short note describes how we approached the Arup consultation. We are hoping that others will be inspired to replicate, and improve on, our approach within their […]
How do we know where to start, and what we really need to do to catalyse change in terms of how resilient critical infrastructure is planned, procured, delivered and maintained in practice?
This report aims to explore the various means in which to quantitatively assess the value of the additional capital costs incurred to add resilience to infrastructure projects. The analysis focuses on the concept of ‘Resilience Return on Investment’ (RROI) within infrastructure projects – specifically, reviewing approaches to quantify the value of resilience engineering. Infrastructure clients […]
The research proposes an operational paradigm* for Resilience Engineering based on applying institutional theory (the role of institutions and institutional arrangements) to the management of interdependent infrastructure systems. The main basis of the report is the presentation of a conceptual framework involving regulative, normative, and cultural-cognitive elements of institutional arrangements. *By “operational paradigm,” the authors […]
