Consultation on the Global Methodology for Infrastructure Resilience Review
The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) invites members of the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) community to comment on the Global Methodology for Infrastructure Resilience Review.
The Global Methodology, developed by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) and the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI), aims to support countries in assessing the current state of infrastructure resilience so that areas of improvement are identified and actions taken.
Reviewing national policies, strategies, and legislation on critical infrastructure requires a clearly defined approach. The Global Methodology is a step-by-step guide for conducting infrastructure resilience reviews using a standard approach while being flexible enough to consider each country's unique context and future risks.
The Global Methodology takes into consideration the systemic issues that make infrastructure vulnerable to current shocks and future risks; the expected changes in demand and supply of infrastructure services; and possible improvements in governance and decision-making processes to enhance infrastructure resilience and prepare for future challenges.
The methodology comprises the following five steps:
- Step 1: Map institutional governance and identify key stakeholders
- Step 2: Review existing policies and regulations
- Step 3: Detect vulnerabilities through a stress-testing analysis
- Step 4: Assess current resilience through the Principles for Resilient Infrastructure
- Step 5: Develop an implementation plan and produce a final report
This Global Methodology will be in consultation from 23 August 2023 to 30 September 2023.
The Global Methodology, along with the Stress Testing tool and Principles for Resilient Infrastructure Scorecard, can be accessed through the download box on the right side of this page.
