Purpose: The paper aims to identify success factors and resilience measures that contribute to Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) in Public Private Partnerships (PPP) port projects in Asia.vSignificant losses have been associated with large-scale natural hazards, such asvearthquakes, tsunami, cyclones, and other extreme weather events and thus, ports needvto evaluate their resilience level and adopt relevant DRR strategies to improve it.

Methodology: A Step-by-step methodology, based on literature review, port cases analysis,vquestionnaire survey and expert opinions, was followed.vFindings: The paper provides a research instrument extracted from a large list of measures and factors after a combined screening process was carried out. This instrument offer policy makers and researchers a tool applicable to PPP port projects in Asian countries to evaluate the level of resilience.

Limitations: Relevant resilience measures for some specific projects may have not been considered in order to obtain a standardised instrument.

Originality /value: This paper fulfils an identified need to evaluate resilient port infrastructures and the output is a resilience framework to be used in PPP port projects in Asia.
