ICYMI: Transportation Resilience

Recently, I was invited by the Futures School to put together a sense of the future of transportation. Huge topic! So, rather than discuss counts of cup holders and such, I decided to look at a wicked pull on the industry. And that led to Transportation Resilience.

This is a topic that is relevant to Disaster and Emergency response programs. Collectively, four key economic and political drivers have or will have impacts on the future of emergency management: Global Interdependencies & Globalization, Government Budgets, Critical Infrastructure, and the Evolving Terrorist Threat. It turns nice to have products and services into must haves.

Emergency and Disaster resilience is also a big and emerging topic. The Decision Making under Deep Uncertainty group is also putting together a toolkit of resources to support those programs. and I’m happy to report that they’re including futurists in their planning. I was honored to be one of those futurists.
