Disaster Resilience Scorecard

This Scorecard provides a set of assessments that will allow local governments to monitor and review progress and challenges in the implementation.

Primary Purpose
  • To assist countries and local governments in monitoring and reviewing progress and challenges in the implementation.
  • To enable the development of a local disaster risk reduction strategy (resilience action plans).

This will allow cities to understand how resilient they are to natural disasters. It is based on the UNISDR Ten Essentials of disaster management.
Disaster resilience, and indeed this Scorecard, covers the ability of a city to understand the disaster risks it may face, to mitigate those risks, and to respond to disasters that may occur so that immediate and longer term loss of life or damage to livelihoods, property, infrastructure, economic activity and the environment is minimized.

  • Essentials 1-3 cover governance and financial issues;
  • Essentials 4-8 cover the many dimensions of planning and disaster preparation;
  • Essentials 9-10 cover the disaster response itself and post-event recovery.

Resilience as defined by the Sendai Framework is the ability of a system, community or society exposed to hazards to resist, absorb, accommodate, adapt to, transform and recover from the effects of a hazard in a timely and efficient manner, including through the preservation and restoration of its Essential basic structures and functions through risk management.
