RESILIAGE’s mission is to provide novel knowledge and impactful solutions for exploiting Europe´s hidden and unused resource: community resilience. RESILIAGE will enable a step-change in Disaster Risk Management and in the way research and practice deal with variation in aspects of society like culture, risk awareness, inclusion, socio-economic and geographical conditions by co-creating resilient communities through digital tools and soft solutions consolidated in a holistic and systemic approach. RESILIAGE aims to improve understanding of the behaviour and psychological reactions of diverse society groups affected by a natural and man-made disaster and enhance community resilience. Indeed, with the proactive and participatory involvement of all the relevant stakeholders and end users, RESILIAGE will co-shape and develop a set of digital tools and soft solutions to support first responders and public authorities, empower citizens, share more accurate and accessible information prior, during and after a natural and man-made disaster or crisis situation. These will be integrated in a digital platform, the Resource Ecosystem for Community Resilience, and validated through a holistic systemic Disaster Risk Management and multi-hazards approach in five Community Resilience labs and their networks. Results and lessons learned will provide guidelines and policy recommendations to enhance preparedness plans, SENDAI framework and strategies for Climate Change Adaptation.
