An overview of selected contributions across the different sciences to sustainability and resilience research is provided and discussed. A general frame-work for supporting decisions for sustainable and resilient design and management of societal infrastructures is then proposed taking basis in Bayesian decision analysis and probabilistic systems performance modelling. A principal example for decision support at regulatory level is presented for a coupled system comprised of infrastructure, social, hazard and environmental subsystems. The infrastructure systems is modelled as multi-component Daniels system generating benefits over time after deduction of potential losses due to disturbance events. The societal system is represented in terms of the preparedness level with respect to respond, reorganize and rehabilitate functionality after disturbances and the environmental system is represented in terms of local and global scale constraints concerning acceptable emissions.
