The Disaster Resilience Scorecard provides a mechanism to measure a city's progress in building resilience and allow the city to develop a prioritized list of actions to be taken to improve it. The scorecard is based upon the Making Cities Resilience Campaign's Ten Essentials: the assessments are structured in 10 sections and have been designed to add a level of detail to those Essentials, making them more specific and tangible. Different from the Local Government Self Assessment Tools (LG-SAT), it allows a numerical and visual assessment of the status of an area of activity to track progress, to provide a perspective on a city's total disaster resilience posture, while also identifying gaps in plans and provisions.
The Scorecard has been developed by IBM and AECOM. It is available in the public domain of the Campaign website, freely accessible and currently in paper-based format.
