Resilience performance scorecard (RPS) methodology - Summary

Source(s):  Global Earthquake Model Foundation (GEM)

This paper describes the methodology behind the Resilience Performance Scorecard (RPS), which was developed to more holistically measure earthquake resilience, with the aim of improving decision-making and reducing earthquake impacts.

The RPS is a multi-level and multi-scale self-evaluation tool that empowers stakeholders to assess earthquake risk and resilience parameters based on qualitatively derived information using innovative data collection technologies. Six dimensions are evaluated to address key areas of resilience that mainstream risk reduction into planning and decision-making processes: social capacity, awareness and advocacy, legal and institutional arrangements, planning and regulation, critical infrastructure and services, and emergency preparedness and response.
