Good governance for critical infrastructure resilience
Critical infrastructures are the backbone of modern, interconnected economies. The disruption of key systems and essential services — such as telecommunications, energy or water supply, transportation or finance — can cause substantial economic damage.
This report looks at how to boost critical infrastructure resilience in a dynamic risk landscape, and discusses policy options and governance models to promote up-front resilience investments. Based on an international survey, this report analyses the progressive shift of critical infrastructure policies from asset protection to system resilience. The findings are reflected in a proposed Policy Toolkit for the Governance of Critical Infrastructure Resilience, which can guide governments in taking a more coherent, preventive approach to protecting and sustaining essential services.
