The pandemic outbreak, which is having a huge impact on lives and assets, has brought a renewed focus on ‘resilience’. Resilience is not limited to planning for physical infrastructure; intangible intelligence will be incredibly valuable as businesses and companies become increasingly dependent on urban data and access.

Climate change, pandemic outbreaks, natural disasters and especially multi-hazard occurrences have placed varying amounts of pressure on functions of various urban systems, from healthcare to high street retail, logistics and supply chains. By looking at the various dimensions of business and systems through the lens of asset assessment, we gain valuable insights into the limitations and cracks in our planning and operations. All these make us rethink the way we plan, design, develop and manage our assets to protect the health and wellbeing of people when emergencies arise.

This webinar will cover three dimensions to resilience that goes beyond the output to look at the outcome:

  1. The tangible and physical aspect such as infrastructure, building facilities and services
  2. The intangible aspect including business brand, reputation and data
  3. The people aspect

It will look at the approach of assessing resilience of all these three aspects, taking into account of the interconnectedness and intercorrelation, and the domino and multiple effects it has under various hazard scenarios.
