6Resiliency on Temporal Scale

Minimal interruption of infrastructure service ensures the continuity of economic prosperity.

6.1 Principle 3

Resiliency is the ability of EEIS to cope, recover, or adapt to chronic or acute stressors due to system properties such as robustness, adaptive capacity/redundancy, rapidity, and resourcefulness. In a simple term, resiliency refers to the ability to absorb shock such as temperature, flooding, or droughts. A simple quantification of resiliency is the time that an EEIS recovers from a stressor event and loss of function. On temporal scale, EEIS should be resilient over 20, 50, and 100 years with quantified ...
