Towards training network resilience to maintain disaster recovery expertise


Effective disaster recovery depends on highly-skilled practitioners. Like any sector, however, the education and training systems that build these skills can experience crises that disrupt their ability to function effectively. These can be one-off events (e.g. a major flood) or extend over long periods (e.g. a pandemic or a vocational crisis). Based on the observation that there is a shortage of trainers and teachers in the education sector, as shown by indicator D7 (OECD, 2023), in this article we study the ongoing ability of a French vocational training organization to transmit skills that are useful to society in the event of a natural disaster, and in particular those that will shorten the recovery time of buildings and infrastructures. We propose a model that simulates the flow of people through the educational system and the institution’s ability to generate enough trainers to maintain a chain of know-how transmission. In the simulation of this work in progress, we have parameterized the actual success rates, which we vary in order to define a minimum success rate limit to ensure the renewal of human capital. Based on the proposed model, further testing and analysis will be used to characterize a range of resilient flow behaviors and to provide recommendations for maintaining the condition of the human know-how transmission chain.
