This guidebook describes the principles, tools and practice of developing and implementing urban disaster risk and resilience indicators.
It focuses on the application of three indicator systems of urban risk and resilience which have been developed as complementary tools to communicate risk and promote discussion around appropriate local level risk and resilience strategies at city level: the Urban Disaster Risk Index (UDRi), the Risk Management Index (RMI) and the Disaster Resilience Index (DRI).
The authors present their collective experience and findings in the application of the indicator systems in these applications in this Guidebook. Overall, the objective of the indicator systems and the way that they were applied is to help enhance ownership within city stakeholders with the aim to assist in disaster risk management policy development, decision-making, and monitoring effectiveness of specific disaster risk reducation options adopted.
