The Resilience Resource Library gathers the latest thinking and analysis related to resilience policy, science, strategy, management, implementation, and the range of threats faced by communities around the world in order to help inform and educate students, practitioners, and policymakers. This collection is not exhaustive and is being continually expanded to include information on developing global and domestic security challenges and the latest research on the political, economic and scientific landscape in which 21st century challenges and solutions develop and evolve.

Organization of Library
Although natural and man-made disruptions often cascade across multiple infrastructure sectors – and these sectors are inherently interdependent – for ease of navigation this library is divided into 15 of the most critical sectors dealt with by resilience researchers, practitioners and policymakers on a daily basis. Based on the material’s scope, some items may be categorized under multiple sectors. Within each sector, the collection is organized by publication date.

This article explores the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear crisis, and the inaccurate assessments made by the engineers prompted by epistemological biases. Initially, the engineers and public believed the situation was not as severe as it appeared, while in reality the situation went beyond what was expected by any of the engineers. “This article specifically probes the concept of robust engineering and the way it is used to overstate the ability of nuclear power systems to withstand external shocks.”
Floods are one of the primary causes of human and economic losses around the world. This paper aims to improve flood risk management by better predicting the possible consequences, with a broadly applicable model. The authors present a hydrological model to simulate streamflow for all sizes of bodies of water in order to predict flood magnitude and resultant economic losses.
This document examines the Israeli government’s decision to establish a military cyber command. It provides insight as to why the structure was reorganized to be more unified instead of split among other commands. It also analyzes the organizational structure of the cyber command, what specific role or actions it might be responsible for, and where that role falls among other cyber agencies.
