“Resilience for All”. This is the motto that has been guiding RESILOC efforts in Bulgaria. This motto has also become part of the understanding of two Bulgarian communities – that of the village of Tetovo (RESILOC trial community) and the town of Dve Mogili (early adopter community).

Throughout RESILOC, the two communities followed a very similar journey, although with a different duration. Multiple workshops were conducted with identified relevant stakeholders who were part of the established local resilience team (LRT).

The communities went through a preparatory phase, in which the volunteers from the local resilience teams and the facilitators from the RESILOC project established the baseline for the work in the community. This included creating a community profile with the most important community information which helps systematize the information for the common understanding within the LRT.

The two LRTs co-decided what are the two most relevant hazard scenarios in the two communities. Tetovo worked with wildfires and snowstorms, while Dve Mogili worked with wildfires and fake news. The LRTs were empowered to work with the RESILOC scientific framework (the so-called DIP framework coming from dimensions, indicators and proxies).

The second major phase during the communities’ RESILOC journey was data collection. Data collection took place after the LRTs agreed on the set of indicators and proxies they deemed relevant for the hazard scenarios. Data collection included accessing public databases, community surveys and expert estimations. Once the needed data was collected, it was input in the RESILOC cloud platform. The assessments that resulted thereafter were validated with the local communities in Tetovo and in Dve Mogili through a Citizens Jury. Since the assessments and resulting strategic recommendations were approved within the communities, a strategy was issued and presented to policy makers in Ruse Region

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.
