Principles for resilient infrastructure
The Principles for Resilient Infrastructure describe a set of principles, key actions, and guidelines to create national scale net resilience gain and improve the continuity of critical services such as energy, transport, water, wastewater, waste, and digital communications, which enable health, education, etc. to function effectively.
The Principles for Resilient Infrastructure have been developed by UNDRR to support implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals. These global principles aim to raise awareness and set an understanding of what “resilient infrastructure” constitutes; form the basis for planning and implementation of infrastructure projects that take resilience as a core value; communicate the desired outcomes of national infrastructure systems to establish resilience of critical services; and assist the public and private sectors in making risk-informed policy and investment decisions.
