The RESILOC Project is part of the DRS-01 Research Cluster, which collaborates in research and innovation to improve the understanding and useful integration of human factors, and social, societal, and organizational aspects in disaster-resilient societies in Europe.
The core elements that the cluster addresses include:
- Understanding the link between individual and collective behaviour and resilience.
- Understand the role of (new) technologies, their influence and use on resilience and risk governance.
- Inclusive approaches to involve citizens and local stakeholders in building resilience strategies and risk governance
Recommendations on how decision-makers at different levels can facilitate their attempt to building the resilience of society and citizens in the EU and in line the with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
Other Cluster Members:
BuildERS shall target for increasing the social resilience capital of European communities and citizens. It will do this genuinely co-designing processes and tools with citizens, first-responder organisations and tool developers.
LINKS is a comprehensive study on disaster governance in Europe. Its overall aim is to produce sustainable advanced learning on the use of social media and crowdsourcing (SMCS) in disasters.
ENGAGE aims to improve societal resilience by better linking the informal resilience inherent to civilian populations with the formal work of authorities and emergency organizations. The project will produce an enriched catalogue of solutions and implementation guidelines to facilitate citizens’ engagement in disaster management processes.
The EU-funded RiskPACC project aims to increase disaster resilience in society by understanding and closing the risk perception action gap (RPAG) using a co-creation approach to risk communication. In doing so, the project will facilitate greater interaction between citizens and civil protection agencies to collaboratively identify their needs and develop potential procedural and technical solutions to build enhanced disaster resilience. The work of the project will not only lead to a framework and methodology to understand and close the RPAG, but also to the design and prototype of novel digital and community-centred solutions.
CORE project aims to Increase risk awareness to create for disaster-resilient societies. It identifies and implements best practice and knowledge, learning from seven past cases and from countries like Japan which has high levels of seismic and tsunami risk, but where risk awareness is high. Blending this European-specific and global best practice, CORE will provide optimised actions and harmonised solutions to rebuild socio-economic structures after a disaster. Through trans-disciplinary collaboration involving environmental science and social science communities, it will define common metrics related to the different types of disasters, and how to measure, control and mitigate their impact.
