United Nations city disaster resilience scorecards: USA, Chile, Angola

Stamford (USA), Puerto Montt (Chile) and Luanda (Angola) cities held workshops with multiple stakeholders to complete the United Nations City Disaster Resilience Scorecard. The workshops were notable in identifying both technical requirements, and also gaps in understanding and communications between different agencies.

These gaps, if left unaddressed, could easily have led to a compromised disaster response, or to development and other activity that would have weakened resilience in the longer term. The workshops were held over one or two days and were facilitated by IBM and, in the case of Stamford, by the engineering company AECOM.

This case study is one of a series produced by members of ARISE, the UNISDR Private Sector Alliance for Disaster Resilient Societies.
