Do you wish to change your organization’s perspective on using social media and crowdsourcing in disaster risk management? Check out the final version of the Resilience Wheel, which is now available on the LINKS Community Center (LCC). The new materials include a set of instructions of how to use the Resilience Wheel to create and facilitate a workshop on the strategic use of social media and crowdsourcing in organizations as well as a template where you can modify the Resilience Wheel.
The Resilience Wheel is a strategic tool for discussing and assessing what authorities, NGOs and private sector organizations working with disasters need to consider when using social media and crowdsourcing in disaster management processes. It is a tool that helps to kick start holistic and context dependent conversations about potentials and challenges associated with using social media and crowdsourcing in disaster management processes. It assists as a framework to map an organization’s capacities to apply these technologies in disasters.
