European observatory on disaster risk and crisis management best practices (ROADMAP)
ROADMAP project has the main objective to establish a European “Doctrine on disaster risk and crisis management” funded on the mutual cooperation between scientific communities and DRM authorities. The doctrine that is intended as a shared understanding of disaster management between decision-makers and scientific actors will be based on selected experiences, best practices and implemented solutions in EU Member States.
Following a bottom-up approach, best practices collection will be founded on systematic recognition of information from the web, distilled in periodical bulletins dedicated to decision makers and practitioners. Three thematic papers will be prepared on relevant themes in the DRM field. The selection of topics for the thematic papers and critical review of the already existing solutions will be achieved through synergic interaction with a suitably established Advisory Group (AG), formed by experts both on science and decision making in DRM.
