Gamification for Resilience

Enable resilience informed decision-making with an insightful combination of systems engineering concepts

In Gamification for Resilience: Resilient Informed Decision-Making, a team of distinguished researchers deliver an insightful and exciting integration of game theory, design, and applications that explains how to create a resilient city that promotes sustainable development, well-being, and inclusive growth. The authors combine several concepts and techniques taken from serious gaming and integrate them into decision-making theory, demonstrating how to enable Resilience Informed Decision-Making.

The book addresses critical infrastructure systems and how to ensure these systems are supported against manmade, natural threats and hazards. It includes thought-provoking research questions and case applications that will engage and challenge readers and create an active and memorable learning experience.

Readers will also find:
* A thorough introduction to systems theory as the basis for bridging science and the practice of engineering systems
* Comprehensive explorations of gamification and its application to the resilience informed decision-making process
* Practical discussions of the analysis and assessment of risk and vulnerability via serious gaming
* Fulsome treatments of the representation of system complexity using object-oriented programming

Perfect for professionals and researchers working in the areas of decision making, gamification, resilience, risk assessments, and critical infrastructures, Gamification for Resilience: Resilient Informed Decision-Making will also benefit undergraduate and graduate students studying urban planning, smart cities, and related subjects.
