UNISDR Disaster resilience scorecard for cities - NZ secondary data assessment

Modified version of the UNISDR's Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Cities. This contains all of the elements that would be assessed as part of this programme with some reflections on the availability of secondary data for assessing various components in New Zealand. "The Scorecard provides a set of assessments that will allow local governments to monitor and review progress and challenges in the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction: 2015-2030, and assess their disaster resilience. It is structured around UNISDR’s Ten Essentials for Making Cities Resilient. It offers the potential for scoring at two levels:

Level 1: Preliminary level, responding to key Sendai Framework targets and indicators, and with some critical sub-questions. This approach is suggested for use in a 1 to 2 day city multi-stakeholder workshop. In total there are 47 questions indicators, each with a 0 – 3 score; Level 2: Detailed assessment. This approach is a multi-stakeholder exercise that may take 1 –4 months and can be a basis for a detailed city resilience action plan. The detailed assessment includes 117 indicator criteria, each with a score of 0 – 5." (https://www.unisdr.org/we/inform/publications/53349)

Description

Modified version of the UNISDR's Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Cities. This contains all of the elements that would be assessed as part of this programme with some reflections on the availability of secondary data for assessing various components in New Zealand. This is the excel version of the Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Cities data entry form produced by the United Nations Office of Disaster Risk Reduction and available from https://www.unisdr.org/we/inform/publications/53349. This tool is being employed by researchers in the Urban Laboratory as part of the Resilience to Nature's Challenge National Science Challenge.

Resources

11 worksheets (1 for each of the city resilience 'essentials' and 1 for the definition of the rating scale). Columns A-E on woskheets 1-10 come from the original UNISDR scorecard documentation. Column F labelled in some cases "NZ Measure" contains some brief notes on secondary data that might provide some insights for aspects of the scorecard.

Methodology

Expert knowledge was used to unsystematically review the existing UNISDR Disaster resilience scorecard for cities

Creation Purpose

The UNISDR Disaster resilience scorecard for cities was being trialed in Auckland. As part of the resilience indicators review process undertaken by the Resilience Trajectories toolbox under the Resilience to Nature's Challenges, we reviewed a series of available resilience assessment tools and assessed their alignment with secondary data in New Zealand.

Temporal Coverage

This file was created in 2016.

Additional Notes

This file is not systematic and not complete. I would welcome others to review and comment as they see fit.
