How can multinational companies develop a set of new collaborative business models that can contribute to increased system resilience of cities, regions or countries? Nine companies – Dow, DuPont, IBM, McKinsey & Co, Shell, Siemens, Swiss Re, Unilever and Yara – set up the Resilience Action Initiative (RAI) to explore this question. This important volume documents the findings of RAI over its first two years, sharing models and tools, while highlighting the real-world challenges of delivering resilience solutions.
