Self-assessment Framework for DRM capacities

The CapaCities project has developed a framework for self-assessment of DRM capacities. This Excel tool can be used by local governments and their DRM stakeholders to understand their current situation and identify and prioritize ideas to improve. The questions in the tool are based on the EU Risk Management Capabilities Assessment Guideline, the general and thematic frameworks of the EU for the Peer Reviews on Disaster Risk Management and the personal experience of the developers.
