UNISDR U-Score Scorecard Project
What is the Disaster Resilience Scorecard for – what is its role?
The Disaster Resilience Scorecard is based upon the UNISDR Making My City Resilient Campaign “Ten Essentials”. It is intended to provide a single integrated perspective on a city’s total disaster resilience posture, and on the connections between the many different aspects of disaster resilience, while also identifying gaps in plans and provisions.
As one of the largest metropolitan areas in the UK, the Greater Manchester city region shares many of the resilience challenges faced by other urban areas throughout the world. We are proud to be a UN Role Model for resilience and are grateful for the opportunities that the Making Cities Resilient Campaign has provided. Our experience of international disaster resilience initiatives to date has already provided an invaluable insight into the different approaches and concepts of other cities and we are keen to embrace new opportunities to enable further mutual development.
Being part of the U-Score project will facilitate continued partnership working amongst a number of existing UN resilient cities across Europe and will enable these cities to develop new relationships which will increase the knowledge and expertise available to all.
Greater Manchester continues to be committed to international disaster risk reducti
