From indicators to action: the case of Auckland ten essentials of Sendai Framework

Source(s):  United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR)

With increasing urban challenges associated with impacts of climate change, risks from natural and man-made hazards, population growth, and urban densification, a focus on long-term resilience to ensure a high level of liveability is essential. Auckland has a vision and plans to be “a world class city where talent wants to live”. Therefore, the city needs to have comprehensive resilience plans, in which resilience indicators are measured and analysed.

This paper presents the process, experience and findings of Auckland’s resilience assessment which was designed based on United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) Local Urban Indicators (LUI) tool. The study was designed and facilitated by The University of Auckland and the Auckland Civil Defence and Emergency Management (CDEM) Group. The study outcomes are the result of discussions of about 100 individuals from more than 30 organisations including private, academic, and local government sectors. The current status of Auckland’s resilience was assessed and categorised under “Ten Essentials” of Sendai Framework 2015-2030.

A review of results indicated that the workshop was a good starting point for the assessment of Auckland’s resilience. Workshop participants contributed a wealth of expert knowledge and made suggestions to improve the resilience of the Auckland region.

This paper is a contribution to the 2019 edition of the Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR 2019).
