Project background

Analysis and lessons learned from the previous experience of fighting with emergency situation consequences show that the assessment of the territories vulnerability and disaster overcoming mechanisms should be conducted with the active participation of the population at risk of emergency or being a witness to the signs of threat of these situations. If the local population is involved in the risk assessment process, it also gives the opportunity to increase its awareness of potential risks and promptly initiate the process of emergency situation prevention.

Thus, currently, there is a need for a large number of people to have a tool which can be used to increase the effectiveness of combating threats of emergencies, collectively solving the following tasks:

  • recording messages about the threats of natural and man-made emergencies risk;

  • discussions of the emergency monitoring threat results;

  • analysis of heterogeneous spatial data in order to detect threats associated with the risk of natural and man-made emergencies;

  • accumulation of the statistics about the registered messages about the threats and outcoming response to these messages;

  • increase of social activity of people and improvement of individual and group skills in detection and prevention of natural and man-made emergencies threat occurrence.

Most significant achievements

European Center for New Technologies of Risk Management - Russian Federation :
The ECNTRM in 2018 analysed the process of how to attract and manage the community in social internet projects, in network projects aimed at transformation of the urban
environment, and in internet social services projects. It found that the volunteers’ community is an effective tool for collective solutions to socially significant tasks. To attract volunteers to the community of spatial data operators and the System users, as well as to manage their motivation and activity, recommendations were required for the formation and management of the volunteers’ community involved in identifying threats related to the risk of emergencies.

The ECNTRM reported on this ‘crowdsourcing’ world practice and gave recommendations for the establishment and management of the social networks volunteers’ community, as well as requirements for the training toolkit for the volunteers.

The full report can be accessed here and the PowerPoint Presentation here.
