A composite policy tool to measure territorial resilience capacity

Author

Abstract

The recent global recession and consequent slow recovery have revealed considerable heterogeneity in economic performance across countries and regions. This study aims at constructing a simple 'handy' composite Regional Resilience Indicator to measure and monitor economic system resilience at regional level in order to facilitate a common easily understanding of this complex and dynamic process. Our approach extends the existing theoretical framework and attributes to resilience a well-defined life cycle. The composite indicator weights have been attributed through weight elicitation techniques built upon principal component analysis.
