Abstract: This review is concerned with measurements of resilience against natural disasters. It includes measurements that focus – partially or fully – on tropical cyclones and related storm surges, droughts, earthquakes, biomass fires, floods, landslides, tsunamis and/or volcanic eruptions. The review also includes issues which are closely linked to disaster resilience such as disaster risk management, vulnerability to disasters and food and nutrition. It does not cover the more narrowly focused forms of resilience, such as psychological resilience, limitation to physical resilience from an engineering point of view, cyber resilience, and supply chain resilience. In recent years, efforts have been undertaken by various organizations to design indicators for measuring resilience more broadly. This review, commissioned by UNDP, takes stock and provides an overview of ongoing efforts at developing and applying measurement frameworks for disaster resilience. In addition, it attempts to identify lessons from measurement systems that have already been in place.
