Many Definitions of Resilience“the ability of a system, community or society exposed to hazards to resist, absorb,accommodate to and recover from the effects of a hazard in a timely and efficient manner,including through the preservation and restoration of its essential basic structures andfunctions. The resilience of a community in respect to potential hazard events is determinedby the degree to which the community has the necessary resources and is capable oforganizing itself both prior to and during times of need.” UNISDR“Resilience is the combination of civil preparedness and military capacity – a society’s ability to resist andrecover easily and quickly from these shocks through a combination of civilian, economic, commercial andmilitary factors”. NATOThe ability to adapt to changing conditions and withstand and rapidly recover from disruptiondue to emergencies. Whether it is resilience towards acts of terrorism, cyber-attacks,pandemics, and catastrophic natural disasters, our national preparedness is the sharedresponsibility of all levels of government, the private and non-profit sectors, and individualcitizens” DHS USA

Action PlanSTEP 1Review of existing frameworks and indicator sets formeasuring resilienceSTEP 2Create a system matrix with types of shocks andingredients of the system

Step 3To assess the impact of a certain type of shock(colour coding) Which system variables are relevant for a given shock? Which ingredient of the system and which system variables would itaffect directly ? After the direct hit, which additional ingredients and (groups of)system variables would be affected ?

Step 4Develop indicators of resilienceResilience indicators can be estimated as the dynamicresponse of system variables to disturbances by groups,city, region or country level.Possible estimation approaches:- Event study approach- Model-based approach

Objectives of project on Resilience Develop indicators to monitor resilience of the EU invarious fields Promote the analysis of resilience in the policy makingprocess, assessing the impact of existing and new policieson stimulating resilience Do this by arranging and steering related JRC activitiesusing the common Resilience framework Involving also partner DGs, EU and internationalinstitutions and academic liaisons
