Ground Corp provides resilience and transportation advisory services and has substantial experience in assessing resilience and transportation networks for world cities.
Urban resilience is the capacity of individuals, communities, institutions, businesses, and systems within a city to survive, adapt, and grow no matter what kinds of chronic stresses and acute shocks they experience. (source:100 Resilient Cities).
Cities and society as a whole face both natural and manmade threats. This is evident in the frequency of natural disasters and the volatility of the global climate. Whilst factors influence the severity of the threat such as population density, geography and topography, the threats faced are not unique, and there are a variety of initiatives that are implemented, and trends that are evident worldwide in how threats are being addressed.
Transportation networks face pressure from increasing urbanisation. Sophisticated initiatives are implemented worldwide to mitigate congestion, maximise existing networks and expand capacity.
Ground Corp's experience and our knowledge of current practices of leading world cities provides valuable insight into the assessment and planning of urban resilience and transportation.
