The results of the ARC-D toolkit serve as a valuable entry point into analysis of critical sector systems and thematic areas. The 30 components of disaster resilience can be categorised in these two ways: critical sector systems and/or thematic areas.
The analysis of critical sector systems allows to do a “vital signs” check on these systems for disaster resilience and identify the functional systems that can be leveraged for better resilience outcomes or dysfunctional systems that need to be strengthened or transformed to better support community disaster resilience.
The four thematic areas, correspond to the four Priorities for Action of the 2015-2030 Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. The thematic areas allow to focus actions within and across sectors by States at local, national, regional and global levels.
