This report presents the results of a desk based study that critically reviews existing indicators and metrics used to assess the resilience of communities and critical infrastructure (CI) stakeholders to disaster events and to identify those most appropriate for use in the Resilience Assessment and Improvement Framework (RAIF). The report builds on the previous resilience literature reviewed in LIQUEFACT Deliverable D1.1; the disaster risk reduction frameworks reviewed in LIQUEFACT Deliverable D1.3; and the theoretical background to the RAIF outlined in LIQUEFACT Deliverable D1.4. In addition the report reviews various (EU Funded) disaster risk reduction frameworks currently in development and identifies the range of indicators used to assess the resilience of CI systems. The report also critically appraises the modelling approaches used by these frameworks to assess the impact of CI resilience and overall community resilience. The report maps the indicators against the needs of the RAIF and provides the rationale behind the selection of those indicators included in the RAIF. The report also provides a first draft of the top level metrics which will be developed as part of the RAIF (LIQUEFACT Work package 5) and tested through the Emilia Romagna Case Study (LIQUEFACT Work Package 7). To this end this report will: 􀁸 Present an overview of the RAIF and summarise the theory of community resilience to disaster events; 􀁸 Review the principles underpinning disaster risk reduction frameworks and present a review of current EU projects that address CI and community resilience; 􀁸 Present an overview of the UNISDR Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and critically review the UNISDR Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Cities; and 􀁸 Present a first draft of the indicators and metrics that will be used in the RAIF to assess the impact of EILD events on both CI and Community resilience. Goal: The primary aim of this report is to provide the LIQUEFACT project partners and researchers with an introduction to the indicators and metrics that will be developed as part of the RAIF to assess the potential of EILD mitigation interventions to improve the resilience of buildings and CI to EILD events and as such contribute to improved community resilience to EILD events.
