What is Resilience?

Put simply resilience is the ability of a system to absorb shock and carry on performing the function that it was designed to do. The system can be anything from global supply chains to individual houses, from transport networks to local allotments. Resilience is a response to the realisation that we have designed our world to work well, so long as nothing changes very much. Our trains run unless there is bad weather, our energy supplies are secure unless there is an earthquake and our communities hang together until there is cause to riot.
