Creating a digital platform to assess community capability based resilience and putting communities at the centre of infrastructure systems decisions

The CAPABLE project proposes a one-click digital board to offer evidence-informed advice to respond to unforeseen challenges, to anticipate different futures and improve crisis prediction and response. Its idea is that stakeholders should have access to a single platform based on enhanced data, analytics and insights that will combine multiple data sources / prediction models to create a practical tool in case of disruptions; and that this platform should be easily adopted by them.

The CAPABLE solutions will be based on two main pillars:

  • leveraging data and digital technologies to address crisis response capabilities in Ireland and
  • resilience framework integration to provide objective KPIs that can drive an effective prioritisation of measures.
