The role of public policy in critical infrastructure resilience

Source(s):  The Resilience Shift

As part of its work on incentivising resilience, the Resilience Shift aims to answer questions on what we think is important in terms of moving the needle for the resilience of critical infrastructure, what we should do, why is it important and how do we put it into practice?

This report is concerned with the role that public policy instruments, like regulation and standards, can play in embedding resilience in critical infrastructure systems. It provides clarity in the use of key terms including ‘public policy’ and ‘policy instruments’ and highlights early innovations in critical infrastructure resilience policy.

The report has been prepared by Dr Svenja Keele, with the assistance of Professor Lars Coenen, City of Melbourne Chair in Resilient Cities, at the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute at the University of Melbourne.

The Resilience Shift is delighted to have supported the authors in producing this report. It is an invaluable read for those involved in the planning, design, delivery, operation and maintenance of infrastructure systems, to build understanding of the workings, importance and impact of public policy in improving the resilience of critical infrastructure.
