Rising seas and extreme weather events threaten the status, sustainability and security of low-lying coastal communities. In the face of skyrocketing storm impacts and disruptions of life, the proposed research will develop a well-integrated scalable resilience modelling framework for mitigating vulnerabilities in interdependent infrastructure systems. By integrating risk-based analyses, agent-based simulations, and the socioeconomic impacts of inoperability, the Organising Decentralised Resilience in Critical Interdependent-Infrastructure Systems and Processes (ORDER-CRISP) Project is building an ensemble approach in modelling interdependent-infrastructure failures.
We investigate the effects of recent hurricanes on the interdependent-infrastructures in energy, water, transportation and telecommunication, and the human-infrastructures interactions. With insights from location-specific inter-dependencies and interactions, we explore the co-evolving nature of vulnerability and complementary pathways of resilience at various scales.
