Risk Assessment and Resilience Analysis of Critical Infrastructures for AFAD
A better localization and quantification of natural risks on the Turkish territory
In the last decade, resilience has emerged as a concept for better understanding the performance of systems, especially their behaviour during and after the occurrence of disturbances, e.g. unexpected natural hazards or technical failures. From an operational point of view, a resilient approach can be defined as the ability of a system to withstand an unexpected harmful change or a disruptive event by reducing the initial negative impacts, by adapting itself to them and by recovering from them in a timely and cost-effective way.
In order to tackle emerging technological, environmental, geopolitical, economic and cybersecurity risks and challenges, RINA is able to help Clients prevent, promptly detect, strongly respond to and cost effectively recover from disruptions, such as those caused by man-made events, global changes and natural disasters by increasing the resilience of their assets, covering all aspects with a coherent approach across various levels and phases.
Spanning from the design of technological solutions to the development of policy and user’s recommendations, moving through hazards identification, risk and vulnerability assessment, up to the definition of strategies for territorial protection, we embrace our engineering capabilities to strategically support private, public and non-governmental entities ensuring operational efficiency, business continuity as well as timely and cost-effective recover from crisis events into an asset management process.
In the area of Resilience Engineering, two main application areas have been identified as strategic, due to market evidence and company expertise: critical infrastructure resilience (e.g. energy, transport, water, health, finance, information and communication technologies) and disaster resilience (e.g. earthquakes, floods, landslides, wildfires, heavy precipitation, windstorms).
