2.5.4 Resilience strategies

The identification and implementation strategies to improve resilience in a transportation asset requires a comprehensive approach that is able to take into account all the possible and complex interdependencies between transportation system components and all the foreseeable hazards.

A simplified approach may start from the aforementioned resilience contributing factors (see section 2.5.2) according to which strategies can be grouped as or pro-active actions, if they are dealing with improving robustness and redundancy, and post event actions, if they are aiming at increasing resourcefulness and recovery speed.

In this connection, the former actions can be considered as mainly similar to the risk-reduction strategies (if any) that may have been already undertaken by management, whereas the latter ones can be regarded as peculiar for the resilience management.
