This publication provides a summary of the outcomes of the European Commission-supported U-SCORE project. The U-SCORE project was launched in 2015 in order to pilot the UNISDR Disaster Resilience Scorecard tool in Europe and provide valuable feedback so as to improve the tool and indicators based on the Ten essentials for making cities resilient. The Ten Essentials are the critical and independent steps that need to be undertaken to build and maintain resilience
The UNISDR Disaster Resilience Scorecard was tested by five European cities: Amadora, Portugal; Salford and Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom; and Jönköping and Arvika, Sweden. In addition, the project also engaged the Portuguese National Authority for Civil Protection, the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency and the UK Cabinet Office Department of Communities and Local Government. The project offered opportunities for exchanging good practices in local-level resilience at the European level including also with the city of Lisbon, Portugal.
