Handbook for implementing the principles for resilient infrastructure
The Handbook for implementing the principles for resilient infrastructure guides countries willing to improve the resilience level of their infrastructure systems. By using this handbook and implementing the principles, countries can make progress toward the targets of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), particularly SDG9, on resilient infrastructure.
Improving infrastructure resilience at a system level requires a multi-stakeholder approach. Key actions under each of the principles are detailed in this handbook with explanations, proposed interventions, examples, and indicators to facilitate their implementation. The handbook also provides a governance framework to incorporate these key actions into an implementation plan that considers the country’s priorities, context, and available funding.
