“In April 2012, the National Infrastructure Advisory Council (NIAC) launched a study to examine how regions can become more resilient in the face of increasing risks and infrastructure interdependencies. The Council formed a Regional Resilience Working Group to examine the challenges that regions face in improving resilience and to recommend steps the federal government should take to help regions become more resilient. To frame this topic, the Working Group posed the following questions: 1. Best Practices: What are the characteristics that make a region resilient and what steps can be taken by critical infrastructure owners and operators, state and local government, and the private sector to improve resilience within their region? 2. Process Improvements: How can public and private critical infrastructure partners best work together to improve regional resilience? 3. Federal Role: How can Federal government capabilities and resources help accomplish resilience goals and address any gaps that can make regions more resilient?” This report captures findings and key insights from the study.
