LONDON, UK (18 JULY 2022)
Resilience Rising, a global nonprofit consortium working together to accelerate a safe and resilient future for all, has entered into a three-year, multi-million dollar strategic partnership agreement with global sustainable development consultancy, Arup.
The partnership agreement with Arup will provide Resilience Rising with access to senior leadership and technical experts, programme delivery, project incubation and co-creation, research capability, and office space.
Working together, Arup and Resilience Rising will be focused on defining and delivering actions and initiatives that will accelerate and influence the scale of resilience policy, practice and learning to build a more resilient society.
The partnership builds on the insights, learning, knowledge and relationships pioneered by The Resilience Shift, a 5-year programme supported by Lloyd’s Register Foundation and hosted by Arup that served as the genesis for Resilience Rising.
Seth Schultz, Chief Executive Officer of Resilience Rising, said of the partnership: “The world is dealing with increasingly complex and interconnected challenges that no one sector can solve. Arup is recognized as an influential leader in resilience and holds expertise across many of Resilience Rising’s communities of practice including climate risk and resilience, infrastructure, engineering, research and innovation, business, and government. This partnership ensures that Resilience Rising has access to Arup’s technical expertise and leadership in this area. We look forward to working closely with them over the next few years to address the urgent need to build resilience across all aspects of society.”
Juliet Mian, Global Resilience Skill Leader and Partnership Director, Arup, said: “We are united by a shared desire and sense of urgency to address barriers and advance innovative initiatives that will make resilience a central part of policy and professional practice in the built environment. Resilience Rising’s innovative model spanning multiple communities of practice, including engineers, business innovators and policymakers, fits with our holistic approach to helping our clients enhance their resilience, to climate change and other shocks and stresses.”
