Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Resilience at TRB 2019

ITF will share recent work on resilience with the global transport community at the world’s largest transport conference from 13 to 18 January 2019. ITF will also be present at many related events including the World Bank’s “Transforming Transportation” conference and the meeting of the Sustainable Mobility for All (SuM4All) initiative. 

ITF work is on resilience will be presented publically at the following sessions and events:

  • Tuesday, 15 January: "Supply Chain Network Resilience” session | ITF Secretary-General Young Tae Kim co-chairs. Stephen Perkins, ITF’s Head of Research and Policy Analysis, presents findings of ITF Roundtable on Supply Chain Resilience | 10:15-12:00, Convention Center, Room 152a

  • Sunday, 13 January: "Methods in Resilience Quantification" workshop | Stephen Perkins, ITF’s Head of Research and Policy Analysis presenting ITF work on resilience | 13:30-16:30, Convention Center, Room 140a
    Transport resilience is a concept that measures a network’s ability to plan for, absorb, recover from, and adapt to disturbances. This is differentiated from risk, which investigates planning for and absorbing specific events. Different methods of transport resilience quantification will be explained. Participants will then estimate different resilience quantification metrics for case studies. By the end of this session, participants should be able to explain the difference between risk and resilience and to quantify the resilience of a given transport network.
