Turning theory into practice to kick off 2018

We have had a good response to our call for Expressions of Interest and look forward to selecting partners to develop proposals with beyond 16 April.  See the call here. Thanks to everyone who’s been in touch so far. Thanks also for the comments on our report ‘understanding the landscape’.

We’ve launched an exciting new project on Basin Scale Governance in partnership with Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI)Arup’s Water team, the City Water Resilience Framework (supported by the Rockefeller Foundation) and We Are Telescopic. During a two day opportunity framing workshop, we defined the resilience opportunity together and took the first steps towards mapping out activities and expected outcomes of the project (with thanks to our strategic partner ValueLab). We’re looking forward to field consultations shortly.

Members of the Resilience Shift team attended the Arup University/MIT executive learning module on the Resilience of Urban Systems.

We presented our poster on catalysing resilience within and between critical infrastructure at the ETH Infrastructure Resilience Conference in Zurich and enjoyed talking with the other presenters about resilience modelling and qualitative approaches – ultimately there is room for both, providing we recognise the limitations of each.

The Resilience Shift attended the Global Resilience Research Network Summit in Boston from 29th-30th March and we look forward to further collaboration with the GRRN.

We also attended the Black Sky Hazards workshop and look forward to continued discussions with the EIS councilEncore and UKCRIC.

The IBuild final event was also very interesting and their work is extremely relevant to our work on understanding what resilience is worth, our broader framing of the resilience value question.

And finally, here’s a roundup of interesting things we came across this month in the resilience world:
