CIrcle

Ciritical Infrastrctures Relations and Consequences for Life and Environment

CIrcle is a tool to support the analysis of domino effects of critical infrastructure failure. It gives insight into how the effects of shocks and stresses on one type of infrastructure can lead to subequent effects on other types of critical infrastructure.
Users define the dependencies between Critical Infrastructures and CIrcle facilitates the discussion between interdependent stakeholders, building trust and stimulating future partnerships.

CIrcle’s approach:

  • Gather (open) data on critical and vulnerable infrastructure
  • Gather expert knowledge on direct impacts and dependencies
  • Combine data with expert knowledge to conduct cascading effect analyses
  • Complement risk assessments with gained insights on indirect effects
  • Increase cooperation between stakeholders

Users are governmental organizations and agencies, network operators, emergency response organizations as well as large industries who are interested in the dependencies between Critical Infrastructures.

GRRASP

Geospatial Risk and Resilience Assessment Platform

Geospatial Risk and Resilience Assessment Platform (GRRASP) is a World Wide Web oriented architecture bringing together geospatial technologies and computational tools for the analysis and simulation of critical infrastructures. It allows information sharing and constitutes a basis for future developments in the direction of collaborative analysis and federated simulation. It takes on board security concerns in the information sharing process, thanks to its ability to manage users and roles consistently. Based entirely on open source technologies, the system can also be deployed in separate servers and used by EU Member States as a means to facilitate the analysis of risk and resilience in critical infrastructures.

GRRASP can be used for the analysis of complex networked systems taking into consideration cross-sectoral and cross-border interdependencies. It can be used for analyses of CI disruptions at local, regional, national, international level. GRRASP follows a tiered approach according to which Tier 1 modules can be used for the analysis of critical infrastructures at sectoral level, Tier 2 modules for cross-sectoral analyses (interdependencies), and finally Tier 3 modules for high level economic impact of CI disruption at state level.

RVR

Resilience Value Realization

The Resilience Value Realization (RVR) methodology was developed by ValueLabs through funding from The Rockefeller Foundation to be used by city governments with project owners identified.

RVR is a customized approach to project planning, pre-development, and development that was designed to identify, catalyze and protect the delivery of resilience value to public and private stakeholders in a project. The RVR approach comprises working with project teams and resilience champions to be very specific about how the opportunity can create resilience and to address, as an integral part of project development, any challenges impacting the delivery of resilience value. The workshop is structured to start with understanding where things are today, then asks participants to develop an opportunity statement around where they want to be in the future, which leads to development of a roadmap for realizing that opportunity.

The tool is flexible and has also been used to identify and empower a project owner.
This tool is delivered as a workshop, but requires pre-work including interviews, data gathering, and data representation (drawings, maps, figures, etc.). This tool can be used in all geographic regions.

ThinkHazard!

GFDRR, a unit within the World Bank, has developed a web-based tool ThinkHazard! to enable non-specialists (decision makers, planners and government staff) to consider the impacts of disaster on new developments of project.
Users can quickly assess the level of river flood, earthquake, drought, cyclone, coastal flood, tsunami, volcano, and landslide hazard within their project area to assist with project planning and design. Users are only required to enter their project location – national, provincial or district name. The results interface shows a user whether they require high, medium or low awareness of each hazard when planning their project.

The interface provides links to additional resources such as country risk assessments, best practice guidance, and additional websites. ThinkHazard! also highlights how each hazard may change in the future as a result of climate change.
The tool is a web-based open source mapping platform allowing other developers to improve or alter the platform.
This tool is available in English, French, and Spanish. Data is available for all countries, but the information is most relevant for less developed countries as GIS datasets are more advanced in more developed countries.

TORC

Training for Operational Resilience Capabilities

The Training for Operational Resilience Capabilities (TORC) approach addresses three distinct training arenas; operational training addresses the exploration of the necessary margin of maneuver in the “compliance vs resilience” space, managerial training addresses the assessment of a reasonable and accountable space of maneuver, while integrated training addresses the active reconciliation of margin and space of maneuver. This facilitates a continual process of updating of rules based on the enhanced knowledge about the professional competence and craftsmanship in the organization at hand.

The TORC approach is designed to be applicable in different contexts; in a normal operation context where pre-existing rules and procedures form the expectations of compliance, in an emergency context in which emergency plans form the presumptions of compliance, and in a “managing the unexpected” context in which the applicable set of rules and procedures must be collected and formed instantly and situation-dependently.
