Technology and collaboration for building resilient cities.
Resilience Monitor establishes a direct communication among CROs, Resilience teams, volunteers and citizens; for mapping, assessing and acting on a city’s hazards.
The system was built based on the “Ten Essentials” defined by the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) for Making Cities Resilient. Concepts of The Resilience Scorecard for cities created by IBM and AECOM. And many other researchs and ideas
Resilience Monitor tool is mainly used in the following areas:
Risk mapping and assessing
The app allows teams and volunteers to send an evaluations of:
- Exposures: Who or what is potentially in harm
- Vulnerabilities: The potential consequences of exposures
- Risks: What types of risks are most probably related to trigger those exposures and vulnerabilities (earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, fire, hurricane, etc.)
Infraestructure inspecting and updating
Resilience teams and volunteers can make an inspection of:
- City infraesctructure
- Protective infrastructure (barriers, flood, basins, sea walls, etc.)
- Water, electricity and gas services.
- School facilities (possible shelters).
- Healthcare facilities (hospital and clinics).
- Transportation system (evacuation routes, damage on buildings and tunnels, etc.)
