The UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) has invited members of the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) community to provide feedback on the Global Methodology for Infrastructure Resilience Review. This Methodology, created in collaboration with the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI), aims to assist countries in evaluating the current state of infrastructure resilience, identifying areas for improvement, and taking necessary actions.


The Global Methodology offers a step-by-step guide for conducting infrastructure resilience reviews that can be adapted to suit each country’s unique context and future risks. It also considers the systemic issues that render infrastructure vulnerable to current shocks and future threats, as well as anticipated changes in infrastructure services supply and demand. Additionally, the guide examines potential improvements in governance and decision-making processes that can enhance infrastructure resilience and readiness 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


The consultation will run from 23 August 2023 to 30 September 2023. More information, access to the Guide and Online consultation form is available from Prevention Web
