EC launches digital tool to help EU countries monitor their resilience
On 29 November 2021, the European Commission (EC) launched an interactive website to navigate the resilience dashboards, a set of indicators and information on resilience in Member States and non-EU countries. This will further help EU countries identify their strengths and vulnerabilities when it comes to navigating the green and digital transitions, facing challenges and coping with potential shocks.
The dashboards were first announced in the Commission's 2020 Strategic Foresight Report, focused on resilience as a new compass for EU policy-making. Developed in cooperation with Member States and relevant stakeholders, these dashboards help countries, and the EU as a whole, to identify their capacities and vulnerabilities when it comes to navigating their economic and societal transitions, while coping with challenges and potential shocks.
The dashboards provide a holistic picture that spans four dimensions: social and economic, green, digital, and geopolitical. By identifying strengths and vulnerabilities, the resilience dashboards can help countries, and the EU as a whole, understand where to focus efforts to make progress towards policy objectives amidst potential challenges like supply disruptions, climate change, health crises or cyber threats. The dashboards also cover several non-EU countries, so the resilience of the EU can be assessed in an international context.
Right now, the dashboards show that the EU has medium to high capacities in many areas, while the situation with vulnerabilities can be improved. In the future, the dashboards will also help to assess whether EU and national policies are making societies more resilient.
