Urban Risk Assessments: Understanding Disaster and Climate Risk in Cities

The Urban Risk Assessment presents a flexible, cost-effective approach that project and city managers can use to identify feasible measures to assess a city’s risk. The methodology focuses on three reinforcing pillars that collectively contribute to the understanding of urban risk: a hazard impact assessment, an institutional assessment, and a socioeconomic assessment.
