Economics of Resilient Infrastructure

Economics of Resilient InfrastructureResilient Organisations are core team members for a new research project "The Economics of Resilient Infrastructure (EoRI)" which is funded by the New Zealand government for $2.8m over 4 years. 


The project will develop a new tool which will:

  • quantify the economic implications of vulnerabilities to infrastructure failure from both natural hazards and infrastructure-only events, and
  • explore alternative post disaster recovery strategies.

The key output will be a high resolution assessment across space and through time of the economic consequences of infrastructure failure, business response and recovery options.
