The multiple drivers of change currently facing ports require a whole-systems approach before low-carbon, resilient ports transformations can be realised says a new report from The Resilience Shift. “This is the right time to catalyse the urgent action that needs to be taken by the whole ports-value chain to transform ports into low-carbon, resilient gateways”.
In a complex and uncertain world, resilience is essential to the business continuity of ports and the critical infrastructure systems that ports connect. Society needs resilient, low carbon gateways to prosper. In September 2020, the Resilience Shift launched Resilience4Ports, a collaborative initiative to enhance the resilience of ports. After an extensive scoping exercise, engaging the […]
Juliet Mian looks back over highlights from the last quarter and at what we have learned together, with a reminder that there is no silver bullet when it comes to resilience.
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.
