Resilience Toolbox

Resilience tools can be useful for a wide range of practitioners but it can be hard to find the right tool for the job. The Resilience Shift has assessed a wide range of tools, which are listed below, mapped by the resilience value they add at different stages of the infrastructure lifecycle. More information about the project can be found here.

ARGOS

ARGOS is a software system to support emergency organizations to make the best possible decisions in case of incidents involving atmospheric dispersion of hazardous CBRN-materials.

ARGOS is useful throughout the entire disaster life cycle:

  • During the Preparedness phase for planning, dimensioning and training – including evaluation of various ‘What-if’ scenarios.
  • During the Response phase by calculating prognoses about how the situation will evolve; what can be the consequences of the dispersion; what the proper emergency or evacuation zones are; etc.
  • During the Recovery phase; what the effect of applying possible countermeasures will be; etc.
  • and in the Evaluation phase, to study what could have been done better and how the situation could have evolved.

CRPT

City Resilience Profiling Tool

The City Resilience Profiling Tool (CRPT) is a self-assessment tool primarily addressed to municipal leaders, managers, urban planners, and other personnel with a responsibility for ensuring the safety, maintenance, and security of all aspects and functions of an urban area, including critical infrastructure and services, health facilities, transport and telecommunications networks, sanitation, water, etc.

The City Resilience Profiling Programme (CRPP) designs this tool for generating metrics for urban resilience in order to establish baselines (or ‘profiles’) upon which to integrate resilience based inputs to sustainable urban planning, development, and management processes in cities and other human settlements throughout the world. The main goal of the CRPP is to support local governments and their stakeholders by transforming urban areas into safer and better places to live in, and improve their capacity to absorb and rebound quickly from any and all potential shocks or stresses.

CWRA

City Water Resilience Approach

The City Water Resilience Approach (CWRA) responds to a demand for innovative approaches and tools that help cities build water resilience at the urban scale. The CWRA was developed to help cities grow their capacity to provide high quality water resources for all residents, to protect them from water-related hazards, and to connect them through water-based transportation networks (“provide, protect, connect”).

The approach is the result of fieldwork and desk research, collaborative partnerships with subject matter experts, and direct engagement with city partners. Based on this research, the CWRA outlines a process for developing urban water resilience, and provides a suite of tools to help cities grow their capacity to survive and thrive in the face of water-related shocks and stresses. The approach details five steps to guide cities through initial stakeholder engagement and baseline assessment, through action planning, implementation and monitoring of new initiatives that build water resilience.

Envision

Envision is a groundbreaking resource for professionals involved in planning, designing, building, maintaining civil infrastructure. As a rating system for sustainable infrastructure, Envision is supported by a wide array of respected organisations involved in infrastructure design, construction, and operation.

Envision provides guidance on sustainable best practices at no cost to users, and serves not only as a planning and design tool, but also as means of evaluating infrastructure project once complete.

PCVA

Participatory Capacity and Vulnerability Analysis

Oxfam’s participatory capacity and vulnerability analysis (PCVA) tool is a risk analysis process designed to help staff and partner organisations engage with communities in contexts where natural disasters are significant drivers of poverty and suffering. PCVA has its roots in two proven social development methodologies. First, it stems from capacity and vulnerability analysis (CVA) methodology. This has long enabled development and humanitarian aid workers to design programmes based on a community’s capacities as well as its vulnerabilities. It recognises that vulnerable people have capacities to cope with adversity and can take steps to improve their lives, however difficult their situation may be. Second, it is rooted in the belief that enabling communities to genuinely participate in programme design, planning, and management leads to increased ownership, accountability and impact, and is the best way to bring about change. PCVA draws on a wide range of participatory learning and action (PLA) techniques and tools that are designed to channel participants’ ideas and efforts into a structured process of analysis, learning, and action planning, with the overall aim of reducing a community’s disaster risk.

Resilence Atlas

The Resilience Atlas was developed with funding from the Rockefeller Foundation to identify where projects should take place and allow users to derive insights of their own based on data. The developers believed that policymakers and donors needed to know where problems were occurring to know where to make investments.

The Resilience Atlas is an interactive analytical tool for building:

  1. Understanding of the extent and severity of some of the key stressors and shocks that are affecting rural livelihoods, production systems, and ecosystems in the Sahel, Horn of Africa and South and Southeast Asia;
  2. Insights into the ways that different types of wealth and assets (i.e. natural capital, human capital, social capital, financial capital and manufactured capital) and combinations among these – impact resilience in particular contexts.

The tool is a web-based open source mapping platform.

To date, the tool has been used at the national level, but there are opportunities to use the data at a more localized level. Data is available for all countries. This tool is primarily used in places where capacity for remote sensing and GIS is lower. “

RESILENS

Realising European ReSILiencE for Critical INfraStructure

RESILENS will develop a European Resilience Management Guideline (ERMG) to support the practical application of resilience to all CI sectors. Accompanying the ERMG will be a Resilience Management Matrix and Audit Toolkit (ReMMAT) which will enable CI systems (encompassing assets and organisations) to have their level of resilience quantitatively and qualitatively indexed.
