Disaster resilience scorecard assessment: Case studies and lessons learned from North Macedonia, Romania, and Serbia

Source(s):  United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction - Regional Office for Europe (UNDRR ROE)

Local authorities which play a central role in developing solutions for decreasing disasters impact, counteract their negative effects, limit recovery costs and safeguard communities, increasingly recognize the need of local resilience and sustainable development strategies based on multi-actor partnerships and engagement. An effective resilience approach should not only contribute to increasing citizens’ capacity to absorb shocks and to cope with stresses, but it will also constitute an opportunity for transformation, in terms of opportunities for capital investments through infrastructure upgrades and improvements, building retrofits for energy efficiency and safety, urban renovation and renewal, cleaner energies, and slum upgrading (resilience dividends). A strategic tool for pursuing the fixed goals is offered by The “Making Cities Resilient” campaign launched by UNDRR in 2010. The Campaign addresses issues of local governance and urban risk, as well as on the sustainable urbanizations principles developed in the UN-Habitat World Urban Campaign 2009- 2013.
