Abstract

The urban environment is becoming more and more complex, not least with regard to security aspects following a decade of continuous threats to cities and their supporting infrastructures. A comprehensive and holistic (systematic) approach to improve the resilience of large scale development against attacks and disruptions has not been developed thoroughly. This paper draws from an EU Seventh Framework Programme project entitled HARMONISE - A Holistic Approach to Resilience and Systematic Actions to Make Large Scale Built Infrastructure Secure - which develops a comprehensive, multi-faceted concept for the enhanced security and resilience of urban infrastructure.This paper builds from the specific themes set out in the 2012 Future Security paper "Security for Critical Infrastructure and Urban Areas: A Holistic Approach to Urban Safety, Security and Resilience", presenting early results of attempts to operationalise holistic security and resilience concepts in urban praxis and demonstrating the need for more integrated resilience governance.
