Examples of how the tool can be used as part of a resilience improvement project
- Bay of Plenty Lifelines Group Resilience Benchmark
The Bay of Plenty Lifelines Group (BOPLG) is made up of utilities providing critical infrastructure to support its region. There has been considerable effort over many years within lifeline groups across New Zealand to improve the resilience of critical infrastructure assets and networks. The BOPLG identified an opportunity to use the Resilience Benchmarking Tool to engage its members in a project to collectively improve the resilience of their organisations.
- Organisational Resilience to Extreme Climatic Events.
This project compares Sydney Water’s organisational resilience and practices with other water utilities to identify strengths and opportunities to further improve their ability to prepare and respond to future extreme climatic events.
