City Resilience Program (CRP)

Supported by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) and the World Bank Group, the City Resilience Program (CRP) was launched as an effort to assist city governments to build greater resilient cities with the financial and technical capacity to prepare for, mitigate, or prevent adverse impacts of disasters and climate change.

The Unbreakable Methodology for Calculating Socio-economic Resilience

This is a model to assess the socioeconomic resilience to natural disasters of an economy, defined as its capacity to mitigate the impact of disaster-related asset losses on welfare. Applied to riverine and storm surge floods, earthquakes, windstorms, and tsunamis in 117 countries, the model provides estimates of country-level socioeconomic resilience. Because hazards disproportionally affect poor people, each $1 of global natural disaster-related asset loss is equivalent to a $1.6 reduction in the affected country’s national income, on average.

The Partnership for Resilience and Preparedness (PREP)

The Partnership for Resilience and Preparedness (PREP) was formed in 2016 around a simple principle—Climate and socioeconomic data should be accessible and usable for everyone. PREP is a partnership of leading research institutions, government agencies, adaptation practitioners, and technology companies, working to empower communities and businesses around the world to build resilience to climate change by improving access to data, creating best-in-class tools, and helping people navigate the complicated resilience planning landscape.

Quick Risk Estimation Tool

The Quick Risk Estimation (QRE) tool has been designed for the purposes of identifying and understanding current and future risks / stress / shocks and exposure threats to both human and physical assets. The QRE Tool is not a full scale risk assessment, rather a multi-stakeholder engagement process to establish a common understanding.
