This policy brief describes the Zurich Flood Resilience Measurement Tool, an innovation in community flood resilience theory and practice. Large-scale application in over 70 communities worldwide, with consistent measuring of pre-event characteristics and post-event outcomes, is generating novel empirical evidence about what really makes a community resilient to floods. The brief highlights the importance of measuring community flood resilience to inform future planning and interventions, and to demonstrate the impact of resilience-enhancing initiatives.
