Office for Northeast Asia & Global Education and Training Institute
Office for Northeast Asia (ONEA) and Global Education and Training Institute (GETI)
The UNDRR Office for Northeast Asia & Global Education and Training Institute (UNDRR ONEA & GETI) was established in 2010 to develop a new cadre of professionals in disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation to build disaster resilient societies.
ONEA & GETI also hosts the Global Secretariat for the Making Cities Resilient 2030 (MCR2030)
UNDRR Office for Northeast Asia (ONEA) supports five countries: Republic of Korea, China, Japan, Mongolia and DPR Korea specifically to reduce disaster loss and risk and to ensure Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 implementation.
The Global Education and Training Institute (GETI) has a global mandate to provide capacity building support to mainstream disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation into sustainable development; convene and support inter-city learning to strengthen resilience (Making Cities Resilient); and to provide capacity building and best practice sharing support to national training institutions working on resilience issues.
Quarterly updates on ONEA & GETI activities and impact are available in ONEA & GETI Newsletters.

Making Cities Resilient
Making Cities Resilient 2030 (MCR2030)
Is your city resilient?
Join other cities, local governments and partners taking steps on a pathway to resilience – making the city safer, preventing risks and promoting innovation and investments.
Making Cities Resilient 2030 (MCR2030) is a unique cross-stakeholder initiative for improving local resilience through advocacy, sharing knowledge and experiences, establishing mutually reinforcing city-to-city learning networks, injecting technical expertise, connecting multiple layers of government and building partnerships.
Launched on 28 October 2020, MCR2030 aims to leverage knowledge and expertise of partners to support cities through a clear three-stage resilience roadmap, from enhancing knowledge on risk and resilience, putting in place disaster risk reduction and resilience strategies, and moving toward implementation and taking actions to strengthen resilience.
Through delivering a clear roadmap to urban resilience and providing access to knowledge management and monitoring and reporting tools, MCR2030 will support cities on their journey to reduce risk and build resilience. MCR2030 aims to ensure cities become inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable by 2030, contributing directly to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 11 (SDG11) and other global frameworks including the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Paris Agreement and the New Urban Agenda.
UNDRR Global Education and Training Institute (GETI) is the global coordinator of MCR2030.

A tool to identifying and understanding current and future risks / stress / shocks and exposure threats to both human and physical assets.
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. Taking into account the actions or corrective measures already undertaken, the QRE will produce a dashboard-style risk assessment advising the risks and hazards to human and physical assets, impacts of identified main risks and associated perils on the specified location and/or particular asset.
The QRE tool uses the hazards classification outlined by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR). The hazard indicators included in the QRE tool are aligned to the 10 Essentials for Making Cities Resilient Scorecard in the context of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015 - 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals.
QRE is currently available in English, Mongolian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish
A tool for disaster resilience planning
United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction with the support of European Commission, IBM, AECOM and other partners and cities participating in the Making Cities Resilient Campaign have updated the Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Cities.
The Scorecard provides a set of assessments that allow local governments to assess their disaster resilience, structuring around UNDRR’s Ten Essentials for Making Cities Resilient. It also helps to monitor and review progress and challenges in the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction: 2015-2030 and supports the baseline analysis for preparation of the disaster risk reduction and resilience strategies.
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.
Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Cities is currently available in more than 15 languages
An Addendum to the Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Cities
"Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Cities: Public Health System Resilience - Addendum" aims to strengthen and integrate coverage of the many aspects of public health issues and consequences of disasters that are not adequately emphasized in the original Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Cities ("the Scorecard"). While the more obvious health factors such as hospital services capacities and structural and non-structural safety are covered in the Scorecard (under Essential 8), other disaster-related public health issues have not been well addressed. This Addendum, promulgated by UNDRR, with the support of World Health Organization (WHO) and partners, aims to remedy this. The Addendum should be used in conjunction with the UNDRR Scorecard, and WHO’s Health Emergency and Disaster Risk Management (Health EDRM) Framework.
The Addendum is structured in sections around the same “Ten Essentials for Making Cities Resilient” as the Scorecard. It inevitably overlaps with the coverage of hospitals and food distribution in Essential 8 and can be regarded as an amplification of these.
- Integration of public health and governance (Essential 1);
- Integration of public health and disaster scenarios (Essential 2);
- Integration of public health and finances (Essential 3);
- Integration of public health and land use/building codes (Essential 4);
- Management of ecosystem services that affect public health (Essential 5);
- Integration of public health and institutional capacity (Essential 6);
- Integration of public health and societal capacity (Essential 7);
- Integration of public health and infrastructure resilience (Essential 8);
- Integration of public health and disaster response (Essential 9);
- Integration of public health and recovery/building back better (Essential 10).
In total, there are 23 questions/indicators, each with a score of 0-5, where 5 is best practice.
Public Health System Resilience Scorecard is currently available in more than 12 languages.
