The Zurich Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities (FRMC) was created by the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance 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 is already resilient to floods, as well as providing a guide to further develop this resilience.
On this page you will find the FRMC web-based tool and mobile app, guidance on applying the framework, information about methodology and supporting research, and testimonials from practitioners using it with communities.
Climate Resilience Measurement for Communities (CRMC)
Since 2013, the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance has successfully been developing and implementing the Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities (FRMC) process, now in over 400 communities globally.
The Climate Resilience Measurement for Communities (CRMC) is the next evolution of the FRMC, meeting the increasing demand to measure resilience to multiple hazards (such as heatwaves and wildfires) in order to accelerate climate change adaptation. It is being piloted in several communities through the Z Zurich Foundation’s Adapting to Climate Change Program, with more to be added soon.
To learn more about the CRMC and find out how it can add value to your programs, please fill in the interest form, get in touch here or contact the Z Zurich Foundation.
We spoke to FRMC Practitioners across the globe to find out what they think about the FRMC tool.
We have e-learning courses and demos to help you unlock the potential of the FRMC tool. Request a Demo
