Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities

The Zurich Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities (FRMC) was created by Zurich Insurance in 2013 and is an innovation in community flood resilience theory and practice. It allows users to generate evidence about the ways in which a given area or community are already resilient to floods, as well as providing a guide to further develop this resilience.

Use this page to access the FRMC web-based tool, to find out more about the theory behind the FRMC and to read case-studies of real-life application.
