The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) invites members of the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) community to comment on the Handbook for Implementation of the Principles for Resilience Infrastructure.

The Principles for Resilient Infrastructure were developed in consultation with over 100 countries as well as stakeholders and experts to raise awareness around resilient infrastructure, integrate resilience as a core value in the planning and implementation of infrastructure projects, and assist the public and private sectors in making risk-informed policy and investment decisions.

UNDRR has now developed the Handbook for Implementation of the Principles for Resilient Infrastructure that provides detailed guidance to each group of stakeholders involved in infrastructure resilience.

The Handbook explains the interventions and key performance indicators that can be used to improve and monitor national infrastructure resilience. Furthermore, the Handbook also presents the governance framework to implement stakeholders’ interventions.

The Handbook is part of a set of enablers supported by the UNDRR to help nations achieve resilient infrastructure, which includes a Resilient Infrastructure Stress Testing model, among other initiatives.  

This Handbook will be in consultation from 19 January 2023 to 20 February 2023.

The Handbook can be accessed through the download box on the right side of this page.

Please send us your comments through this online form.

Thank you for your contribution to this important process for enhancing infrastructure resilience.
