The Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities (FRMC) was created by Zurich Insurance in 2013 and is an innovation in community flood resilience theory and practice. It allows users to generate evidence about the ways in which a given area or community are already resilient to floods, as well as providing a guide to further develop this resilience.
This guide provides information and advice to help you gather high quality information working with the community. This guide has been written for everyone using the FRMC. This learning companion is intended to help you to get the most out of the FRMC process, to understand what it is asking you to do and why, to implement it well, working in partnership with the community, and as a result, to help flood-affected communities to thrive. This guide focuses on helping field staff to understand why they are asking the questions they are asking and facilitate high quality data collection activities with community members. It is also intended to help project managers to make good choices when selecting the data collection methods for each source of resilience.
