CARISMAND - Culture And RISkmanagement in Man-made And Natural Disasters
The CARISMAND project, funded under the H2020 program, involves 19 institutions from 14 different European countries. The project aims to investigate and bring out the sociological and cultural aspects that influence risk management policies in the course of natural disasters, but also of man-made disasters, also in order to increase the capacity of the community to deal with this type of event. . The project highlights these cultural and sociological factors in order to verify existing challenges and opportunities for the improvement of policies and procedures in the event of a disaster and to develop a complete toolkit that will allow both disaster management professionals and volunteers to adopt culturally aware daily practices. This objective will be achieved on the one hand by relating links and gaps that exist between disaster management, culture and risk perception from the broadest and most multidisciplinary point of view possible and on the other by creating feedback between those who have to manage disasters and citizens. which, by testing the proposed solutions, can at the same time provide opinions on how to improve these solutions. Thus, experts and scholars from various sectors (law, IT, cognitive sciences, anthropological, sociological and psychological) will review the existing knowledge and structures while the opinions of citizens and stakeholders will be monitored through meetings and assemblies. The IRPPS is responsible for the WP relating to the evaluation and internal monitoring of the project.
