There is a lack of evidence about the difference that pre-event resilience building initiatives make when a flood comes, with the UNDP recognising (Winderl, 2014) that: “no general measurement framework for disaster resilience has been empirically verified yet”.The Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance has developed the first-of-its-kind flood resilience measurement framework and software working at the community level. This session will interactively demonstrate to participants how we use this approach to improve decision making at community level.
