Activity 3: Recording Information

In order to complete the Rural Resilience Index (RRI) and Hazard Resilience Index (HRI), the relevant information should be recorded in some way.A� This can be as simple as a set of notes, pictures taken during information collection, or adding this information on the map you began working with in Step 1 – Activity 3: Define Community Borders, by marking where your communitya��s assets/strengths and vulnerabilities or potentially vulnerable people are located. If you have identified specific hazard zones, you could also add this information to your map. Alternatively, you may choose a more formal approach by developing a Community Profile – a comprehensive inventory of important details about your community to accompany your maps.A�A� One advantage of recording your findings is that the information is more easily shared, and can be used for additional purposes, such as grant applications or community decision making.

Note that any information entered into the online RRI and HRI tools will be automatically saved. Reports on the data you have gathered and entered in the tools can be generated, saved and/or printed at any time from the My Tools and Reports page.
