"Resilience reflectss tha ability of systems to absorb and recover from shocks, while transforming their structures and means for functioning in the face of long-term stresses, change and uncertainty."
This requires actively understanding in the risk landscape "
Risk systemicity promotes a perspective that risks form complex networks of interdependencies
A particular focus of thr RSQ is on vicious cycles where scenarios continue to get worse.
The RSQ offers a range of possible mitigation actions so that groups can think more intentionally about the implications of rist systemicity for their city, and how to deal with ramifications.
The main focus of the RSQ is on risk scenarios which represent interactiosn between different types of risks that can affect today's cities. Many of the scenarios form vicious cycles when their direct or indirect consequences reinforce their initial triggers. This means that, when vicious cycles whaich can affect a city are not identified and addressed in an effective way, their negative impact on the city may become gradually worse with time. However, as vicious cycles are often non-trivial and not easy to spot, it is important to pay attention to their likelyhood of happening.
For the above reason, in the RSQ you will be asked to consider the likelyhood of various kinds of causal chains and vicious sysles which may affect your city. Each scenario can be seen both in the form of text and pictures to make it easier to understand them. Also, for each risk themes there will be offered a ranfe of suggested risk mitigation actions for consideration.
