Resilient Infrastructure
Publicly-funded infrastructure must be designed resilient. When transport, health care, drinking water, sanitation, telecommunications, and electricity are all resilient, basic services are maintained during disaster, and infrastructure users are not put at risk by sub-standard structures.
