Building systemic resilience of interdependent infrastructure networks at the national scale

In recent years, extreme flood and storm events across the UK have affected large numbers of infrastructure networks and their customers.

These events resulted in economic damages and losses of the order of tens of millions of pounds.

The lack of coherent datasets of interconnected networks and cross-sectoral resilience metrics makes it challenging for government agencies and infrastructure operators to plan for and respond to extreme large-scale weather events.

This project led by Raghav Pant, from the University of Oxford, aims to deliver an open-source modelling framework on the DAFNI platform for stress-testing interdependent network resilience against flood and storm events.
