USTDA’s Global Infrastructure Resilience Initiative will help emerging markets plan, finance, procure and sustain infrastructure to withstand a full range of external risks and challenges.

The Initiative will also help plan and support a range of quality projects, including ideas that prioritize resiliency into their design and implementation:
- Backup telecommunications and information management infrastructure
- Supply chains ensuring distribution of food and medical supplies
- Technology to provide remote healthcare services during pandemics
- Comprehensive data and predictive analytics to enhance emergency response
- Power delivery through redundant grid infrastructure, distributed generation and microgrids for critical infrastructure, including ports and airports
- Intelligent traffic management systems allowing real-time response
- Water management and distribution to mitigate drought
