This document provides a short overview of the language capabilities the Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities (FRMC) has in terms of content, the online software and the mobile Applications. The Zurich Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities (FRMC) was created by the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance (“the Alliance”) 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 community is already resilient to floods, as well as providing a guide to further develop this resilience.
The FRMC is currently applied in over 20 country programs by implementing partners of the Alliance as well as external organizations using almost 20 different languages across the world in different geographic, cultural and flood-hazard related contexts. Critically, the tool has been designed to be as broadly applicable as possible. For instance, it is currently being deployed in both developed and developing countries, as well as urban, peri-urban and rural settings. It can be applied in communities facing all types of flood threats.
