We use a broad range of material such as policy outlines, academic literature, and journalistic research to look at the impacts of natural disasters on critical infrastructures as well as on developments in creating resilient infrastructures, focusing on examples in the United States and Canada with a focus on a case study on Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico in 2017. This case study is based on a scoping review of the academic and grey literature on Hurricane Maria, its impacts on Puerto Rico and the response and recovery to the crisis.
