Toolkit for resilient cities: executive summary

Source(s):  Siemens

This paper explores how the resilience of critical urban infrastructure systems might be enhanced to prepare cities more effectively for major weather-related hazards and the co-benefits resiliency actions have, e.g. environmental performance, energy efficiency, safety and security etc. It focuses on physical infrastructure relating to energy, transportation, water and buildings. These systems were chosen because they underpin many other essential city operations and services, including sanitation, emergency response, and the delivery of food, fuel and other materials. The research considers proven technology solutions applicable to emerging and established cities, and the enabling actions required from policy makers, utility providers and other city stakeholders to facilitate delivery.
