The PEOPLES resilience framework: An integrated quantitative measure and modeling of sustainable development and disaster risk reduction

This paper discusses the PEOPLES Resilience Framework, which has been used to create partnerships and communicate pre- and post-disaster recovery of extreme events. The framework can be combined with environmental, infrastructure, economic or any other quantitative model to assess future scenarios. It is based on seven dimensions: population and demographics, environmental, governmental, physical infrastructure, lifestyle, economic development, social-cultural capital.

The author proposes the following recommendations:

  • Keeping the seven baseline dimensions, the sub-categories of each dimension need to be reviewed by each country.
  • The PEOPLES approach can integrate widely accepted, scientifically valid environmental, economic or other mathematical models.
  • The PEOPLES Resilience Framework is not only for a large, national scale disaster or only after disaster assessment.

This document is an input paper of the 2015 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction.
