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 alphabetically by title.

Floods are one of the biggest causes of human and economic losses around the world, and this paper aims to improve flood risk management by better predicting the possible consequences, with a broadly applicable model. This paper presents 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.
This paper uses two different quantitative methods to analyze the phenomenon of ‘megaregions’ centered around major metropolitan areas, which the authors contend has been taken for granted. They work with 4,000,000 commuter flows and compare the two mathematical methods with ‘common sense’ interpretations to make sense of this new division of space and geography.
