Open Data Infrastructure for City Resilience Navigator

To meet the vision, ambition and needs of Making Cities Resilient 2030, we have created an upgraded digital resource to help you in your city resilience journey. 

The new Open Data Infrastructure for City Resilience resource is a database-driven roadmap, showcase and guide that features over 25 examples of cities and projects from around the world that are innovating with open data to manage their disaster risk and build their resilience. Produced by the original partners, it features 12 new inspiring case studies from pioneers in urban data for resilience.

The Open Data Infrastructure for City Resilience resource consists of three key sections:

a ROADMAP to assist city authorities in the creation of information and data for the 10 Essentials Framework with practical guidance on key steps for strategy development and implementation. Two key assessment tools for understanding the level of data maturity (capacity) of a city are presented, alongside a set of tried and tested approaches to advancing the Roadmap.

a SHOWCASE of real world cases illustrating the innovative use of open or mixed uses of data linked to each of the 10 Essentials and the Disaster Resilience Scorecard. In recognition of the highly divergent levels of data capacity of the cities in the Making Cities Resilient Campaign, the guide includes use cases from a range of developed and developing country cities.

a GUIDE that makes the resilience case for developing local open data infrastructure. It covers cross-cutting issues such as how to develop crowdsourced mapping, data standards, open innovation and risk communication.


Open Data Infrastructure for Resilience was led by Resurgence and a global alliance of partners committed to mobilizing open data for urban resilience, including Resilience Brokers, OpenNorth, GeoSUMR and Esri.
