Port resilience: a primer
Grainger, Andrew; Achuthan, Kamal
The aim of this conceptual paper is to help stimulate further research and enquiry into UK Port Resilience and is a product of the EPSRC funded Knowledge Transfer Collaboration between the University of Nottingham and the Department for Transport (DfT). The paper draws on collaborative work between the authors and senior policy makers within the DfT, as well as on workshops, meetings and an extensive interview series with members of the UK’s port sector in order to address four key questions:
• How important are ports for the UK?
• How vulnerable are UK ports?
• How do ports currently prepare themselves against vulnerabilities?
• How can port resilience be improved?
Interim drafts of the paper were also circulated across Whitehall for further comment and input. The views presented in this paper as well as any errors or misrepresentations remain those of the authors alone.
