This project will analyze barriers and incentives for adopting a new resilience governance framework in Seattle, the goal of improving management of dependencies and interdependencies among lifeline infrastructure systems. This project expands on CIRI-funded work begun in February 2016 that focused on identifying how the transport and energy sectors would likely be impacted should a major hurricane strike Boston.
