Evidence to Navigate a Changing World

Ditch the outdated 100-page hazard and risk reports that you’ll need to repeat in a year.

The Resilience Explorer keeps you ahead with a live, regularly updated platform offering practical, immediate actions.

In today’s world, the risks associated with climate change are becoming more prominent, and there is an increasing requirement to build resilience for future weather events.

Our easy-to-use online tool offers interactive simulations and risk assessments. Just like a real-life SimCity, you can access the most up-to-date infrastructure, hazard, socio-economic, and environmental data all in one place.

Resilience Explorer makes the complex simple, helping with reporting, engaging stakeholders, and empowering you to make decisions based on world leading research for a more resilient organisation, now and in the future.

 “Proving to be a game changer. The Resilience Explorer ascribes a level of vulnerability to assets – so it operates as a risk screening tool to allow us to understand the risk profile of the district, the areas where risk is most imminent, and importantly, which assets are most vulnerable to which hazards, and over which time periods”
