This contribution intends to focus on the relations of LINKS both with the direct stakeholders who will be affected by the project outputs and with the bodies and Institutions who will give appropriate support and visibility to the project (e.g. networks, related projects, etc.).
Disaster Risk Perception and Vulnerability, Disaster Management Processes, Disaster Community Technologies are the three knowledge bases of the projects. They are the starting point of the LINKS Framework, a set of scientific methods, practical tools, and guidelines to understand, measure and govern SMCS for disasters. Let’s see the first results of our study!
Eight months have passed since the start of the project. From the kick off meeting in June 2020, important preliminary activities, which laid the foundations for future ones, have been carried out. Let’s find out the most important achieved results and faced challenges.
