Conference Paper
After two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, the inventory of various research shows us that several organizations were not ready to face a crisis of such intensity and especially with such a temporality. It is important to emphasize, however, that some organizations, more agile than others, have seized the opportunity to review their strategy, proces...
Faced with increasing urbanization and uncertainties linked to climate change, the scientific community has integrated the concept of resilience into urban management practices. Once revolutionary, now a buzzword, resilience is a concept that is difficult to transform into an integrated tool that stakeholders accept and adopt. This paper offers a p...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to present a coherence analysis to evaluate the resilience for a critical infrastructure (CI). This is the new way to evaluate the CI and demonstrate that the authors need to pass from the protection towards resilience. Design/methodology/approach – The authors use two approaches for this research. First is a...
The research results presented aim to define a framework for evaluating the potential of resilience for critical infrastructure (CI). CI are an integral part of the community and a better knowledge of their potential for resilience will help to reduce the risk of disasters and provide tools to manage them. The framework helped to define a method to...
This paper presents the concept of resilience and more specifically the concept of resilience engineering developed in the context of a governmental approach to assess resilience. This approach is part of an overall consequences-based methodology for studying systems in terms of users and providers of resources that aims at identifying the conseque...
The concept of governmental resilience was introduced by the Hyogo Framework in 2005. It suggested a new approach to protecting critical infrastructures and understanding their interdependencies. In a resilience process, it becomes necessary to evaluate and measure the state of resilience; the state, in turn, will indicate the strengths and weaknes...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to show the evolution of the concept “state of preparedness” into “state of resilience” in the context of emergency management, and the implications raised by this new concept. Design/methodology/approach – This paper is a literature review (scientific and governmental) of the most important articles in the f...
Every Critical Infrastructure (CI) uses a road system for its operations, whether to receive resources or to execute support activities. The road system may fail at any time and this could have repercussions on the CI's usage. With the methodology developed by the Centre risque & performance (CRP), it is possible to characterise and model the road...
