Critical Infrastructure Resilience: Understanding the Landscape

This content was originally published on The Resilience Shift website. The Resilience Shift, a 5-year programme supported by Lloyd’s Register Foundation and hosted by Arup, transitioned at the end of 2021 to become Resilience Rising. You can read more about The Resilience Shift’s journey and the transition to Resilience Rising here.

As part of our work to set up the Resilience Shift, we undertook a series of one-to-one interviews, focus group sessions and a global survey with Arup members.

The Resilience Shift’s (former) Executive Director, Dr Nancy Kete, said, “The Arup survey has taught us a lot about the ‘state-of-the-practice’ in design and engineering for resilience and we would like to thank everyone at Arup and elsewhere who contributed to this”.

This document was revised in July 2018.
