Building resilience is a common objective of public institutions, businesses, and the society at large. As we all struggle with the negative impact of natural and man-made hazards, whether they are climatic events, the pandemic or other. Events such as forest fires, Covid-19 pandemic, supply chain disruption are just a few of the most recent events affecting our daily lives. The broad span of these events allows us to differentiate and compare various resilience strategies deployed by governments and businesses, and to see which strategies performed better.
