From 13t o 14 June 2022 the Projects RESILOC and RiskPACC were hosting the 3rd European Conference on Risk Perception, Behaviour, Management and Response (ECRP22) in Berlin. During this occasion dedicated experts from the Risk-SoS Group and the Horizon 2020 affiliated DRS 01 Research Cluster came together to discuss research results and engage in workshops to better understand risk perception and behaviour patterns in Europe and to find ways to harmonise their assessment and monitoring.  

Participating Experts DRS-01 / Risk-SoS

RESILOC presented its “Community-based adaptive behaviour model of resilience”* to the experts that were present and followed on-line. The model wants to overcome the challenge of linking risk perception, as a very dynamically influenced indicator,  to the strategic concept of community resilience.  It suggests community leaders and civil protection agencies to monitor and motivate the adaptive behaviour of their citizens to reduce vulnerabilities in the communities and thus enhance the local resilience.

The model was much appreciated for not ignoring the fact that risk perception has a dynamic influence on resilience (resilience as a process). It uses different theories to containerize the dynamic into the more prescriptive indicator of adaptive behaviour. A key role is attributed to the human agency theory, which is mediated through power structures – and, in particular, the relationship between community ‘lifeworld’ and ‘the system’. The presentation was followed by a discussion that provided RESILOC good ideas for the implementation of the model using a questionnaire.

RESILOC Community-based adaptive behaviour model of resilience

In separate session RESILOC ran a “Workshop to build an adaptation questionnaire”. The Tavistock Institute presented a model survey based on the synthetic scenario of flooding in the UK.  The questions were assessed and commented in a world café format in three groups of physically participating experts and an additional group of experts participating online.

The feedback from the workshop as well as different ideas that were generated through the exchange with experts over the two conference days will now be used to finalise an adaptive behaviour survey to support a particular local resilience assessment in the RESILOC project. The final product should be a global survey on adaptive behaviour that can be tailored to the relevant scenarios and needs of a local community.

RA 2 - General

Catania – Validation Workshops


The goal of the research activity is to collect and evaluate the results of the three workshops of phase one. This will be carried out through a questionnaire (Validation tool 1.1) that is organised in two parts (10 questions in total).

The first section evaluates the relevance/applicability of DIP (dimensions, indicators and  proxies) in the context of Catania.

The second section collects feedback on the role of scenarios as a tool for testing the validity of the DIP system and collects information on the clarity and understanding of the data gathering process. You are asked to receive and complete the questionnaire submitted by the Local Training Lead, returning it back by email before and no later than Monday 07/02/2022.

The RESILOC research team will use the answers you provide to further refine the development of the resilience tool that aims to improve the resilience of local communities.

RA1 - Overview Catania

Catania - Workshops on Dimensions, Indicators and Proxies


The workshop will be a mixed meeting, with both in-person and remote participants, and led by the Local Training Lead. The Local Training Lead will introduce the participants to the theoretical framework developed.

This activity will be performed via a PowerPoint presentation that aims to explain the scientific/research framework of RESILOC, introducing the DIP database and the logic behind it. During the presentation, the Local Training Lead will explore participants views, in particular on the approach of using dimensions, indicators and proxies to capture the resilience of a community; this will be done through dedicated Q&A sessions during specific moments of the workshop.

The purpose is to make the representatives of the Municipality and the LRT members able to evaluate the applicability of the framework in terms of relevance, feasibility, data availability, among others for the community of Catania.
