Analyzing Infrastructures for Disaster-Resilient Communities
Analyzing Infrastructures for Disaster-Resilient Communities is led by the School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP) in association with Public Safety Canada. The project is funded by the Knowledge-building, Outreach and Awareness (KOA) program of Infrastructure Canada.
The overall objective of the project is to develop and disseminate knowledge that is needed to prioritize investments for fostering disaster-resilient infrastructures, and thus, more disaster-resilient communities. In order to achieve this objective, the project focuses on enhancing the understanding of infrastructure failure interdependencies (IFIs) and their societal significance.
This website will share the results of the Analyzing Infrastructures for Disaster-Resilient Communities project with researchers, emergency planners and infrastructure system managers. It also disseminates information on infrastructure impacts of disasters by providing an overview of our IFI research approach and recent research on IFIs related to power outages.
