FAC contribute to guide designed to help scientists and practitioners working on risk governance and resilience evaluation
At Future Analytics Consulting, we have been researching urban resilience concepts for many years, and we contributed some chapters to this resource guide on reviewing existing concepts, approaches and illustrations or case-studies for comparing, contrasting and integrating risk and resilience, and for developing resilience.
Some of our work, with current and former colleagues, features in chapter 19 (critical infrastructure) and chapter 40 (community resilience).
This guide is designed to help scientists and practitioners working on risk governance and resilience evaluation. It stresses the importance of including resilience building in the process of governing risk, including in research, policy, strategies, and practices. It emphasises the need to develop metrics and quantitative approaches for resilience assessment and instruments for resilience management.
