Bridging the gap: towards an urban policy mix for critical infrastructure resilience
Under the label of urban resilience (UR), cities start to prepare for a diverse range of risks deriving among others from climate change and natural hazards. This goes along with a growing interest of cities to restructure their networked infrastructure systems. However, it is argued that there is an implementation gap at urban scale when it comes to policies of critical infrastructure resilience (CIR). The proposed research project aims to identify potentials and barriers for policy design and implementation in the field of urban CIR by analysing pros and cons of the policy mix in two cities (Christchurch, New Zealand and Rotterdam, the Netherlands).
