The interconnectedness of ports to multiple infrastructure systems means they are acutely well suited to the Resilience Shift approach of tackling whole-system resilience.
Resilience Shift Technical Director, Dr Juliet Mian, reflects on our progress this quarter and looks forward to the end of the year with news of Ports, the Brunel lecture and next steps for our work on urban water resilience.
Our work to date shows an urgent need to build the whole-system resilience of ports and global supply chains to withstand multiple drivers of disruption. We are inviting industry, practitioners and policy makers to work with us to deliver on this ambition.
Course Director of Cambridge’s Construction Engineering Masters, Dr Kristen MacAskill, tells us what’s on her mind, lessons learned from the resilience round-tables, and the challenges for resilience as a discipline.
