Planning Resilient Infrastructure Systems is an essential guide for planning practitioners, providing tools and approaches needed for complex, changing and uncertain environments. This book takes a systems approach to infrastructure planning, focusing on delivering and sustaining the optimum outcome for society. It emphasises using evidence to understand the systems’ requirements in context, selecting the most appropriate risk-based tools for the situation, and a through-life view of purpose and value.

Key features include

  • a systematic approach applicable across a range of infrastructure sectors
  • evidence-based tools for mapping infrastructure dependencies, modelling hazard impacts, and assessment of mitigation and recovery options to manage systems risk
  • a common set of planning considerations and performance metrics useful for a range of stakeholders
  • extensive use of examples illustrating applications across a range of contexts.

Planning Resilient Infrastructure Systems provides the reader, whether they are an engineer, an urban planner, or a student, with an indispensable practical guide. It is focused on planning infrastructure for sustainability and resilience, explaining what needs to be done, when, and what is needed to achieve it.
