Measurement and study of Socio-Economic Systems Resilience

Posted by on Nov 7, 2013 in Servizi | No Comments

The ability of a socio-economic system (being an enterprise, a productive system, a family) to maintain its functions when shocks and various disruptions occur constitute a very relevant asset.

The construction of resilient socio-economic systems is a priority for policy makers, professional associations, foundations, local and international institutions.

The RAP (Resilience Assessment Package) is a set of qualitative and quantitative methodologies that allow the identification of a system’s resilience building strategies in order to understand and reduce its vulnerabilities.

Through measuring and studying the socio-economic system’s resilience, the local actors will be able to understand the priority interventions and where allocate the needed resources.
