European cities face an increasing frequency and intensity of hazards and disasters, which are exacerbated by climate change and social dynamics, such as demographic change and an ageing population. Enhancing societal resilience, which includes improving good governance, accountability, and creating a better space for civil society to act has become key to civil protection. The Smart Mature Resilience EU Horizon 2020 project (SMR project) seeks to support capacity building via information systems and to support this process by providing a comprehensive Resilience Management Guideline and defined a Resilience Information Portal.
The workshop will aim at developing consensus-based list of requirements on how municipalities could equip an information system that facilitates building up resilience through collaboration, communication, and engagement. This marks the functional specification for a Resilience Information Portal.
The kick-off meeting will be held on 21 June 2017 in Brussels at ICLEI Europe. All interested parties are welcome to register for participation and submit comments on the draft Project Plan to Workshop Secretary, René Lindner no later than 16 June 2017.
The final deliverable of this Workshop (CEN/CWA) is expected to be finalized in November 2017.
