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.
Contributing to the research on global supply chains, this guest blog on the initial UK-focused research highlights global pinch points, the impact of politics, and how data analytics and sight upstream are critical to resilience
Topical discussions at the UK Ports Conference echoed the findings of research into global supply chain dependencies on critical infrastructure.
Two new reports present findings from research into the dependency of global supply chains on critical infrastructure resilience
The movement of food around the world is an important reality of today’s globalised, urbanised and heavily populated world. Even small disruptions within the supply chain can result in cascading impacts that have negative consequences from farmers to consumers. The Resilience Shift’s focus is on the resilience of critical infrastructure systems, and we recognise that […]
During February, March and April 2019, the Resilience Shift, working with Arup’s supply chain logistics experts, hosted seven workshops on the topic of Resilience of Food Supply Chains. These were designed to improve our understanding of how diverse stakeholders view the dependency of global supply chains on infrastructure resilience and how the Resilience Shift could […]
Resilience Shift primers are intended to be a brief document introducing the elementary principles of resilience relevant to an industry sector
Building resilience of critical infrastructure requires decision-makers working in different industry sectors to understand ‘what’ can be done, ‘why’ it should be done, and ‘how’ to put it into practice. Our work to date has told us that key stakeholders are often either unaware of the value that resilience can bring or are constrained by […]
