Resilience is the capacity to prepare for, resist, endure and quickly recover from adversity – and with each recovery to adapt with increasing success. Resilient systems also retain a minimal level of functionality during adverse events.
We advise cities, municipalities, companies, and infrastructure operators on resilience management. Working together with our clients, develop cost-effective measures to improve their resilience and adaptability.
Adversity comes in the form of acute shocks and chronic stresses owing to human, technological, and naturally occurring causes.
Our approach to resilience management involves working together with the relevant stakeholders to gather, structure and analyze the data and information necessary for effective resilience analysis (steps 1 to 5). We then identify, prioritize, and implement measures (steps 6 to 8), and follow up by monitoring those measures (step 9).
From analysis to implementation and monitoring of measures
In the context of our resilience management services, we work with our clients to answer the following questions:
- How resilient is your city, municipality, company, or infrastructure to shocks and stresses?
- What kinds of shocks and stresses might threaten your resilience in the future?
- What minimal degree of functionality does your city, municipality, company, or infrastructure need to retain to ensure basic operability?
- What measures would be appropriate to increase the resilience of your city, municipality, company, or infrastructure?
