Abstract: Built environment constitutes the fundamental layer for many services and functions of our society. Many physical infrastructures are vulnerable to natural hazards (e.g. earthquakes, floods, tornados) as well as man-made hazards, and the risk of catastrophic damage due to hazardous events continues to increase worldwide. Considerable progress has been made towards risk management and mitigation, however, in particular the earthquake engineering community still faces many new challenges. Focusing principally on seismic resilience, the objectives of the workshop have centred on (i) how we use resilience-based engineering to steward our built environment and make it safer, resilient and sustainable, and (ii) how to assess and develop strategies to improve community resilience against a major disruptive event. The workshop has comprised presentations and discussion sessions. The state of knowledge regarding disaster resilience has first been examined in the light of the lessons learnt from recent major earthquakes. Then the views and approaches were solicited with contributions from Japan, Asia, Europe, North and South America on the new directions for Resilience-Based Design (RBD) in an effort towards catalysing and elaborating a comprehensive, collective and integrated approach to resilience. Currently running research projects on resilience, funded by the EU, were also presented.
