 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'“Mobilizing knowledge” suggests that there is need to dynamize the context in which knowledge about risks is developed, shared, and maintained. It conveys the implicit assumption that knowledge is perhaps currently fragmented and stuck in different compartments and bodies, be they institutions, agencies, universities, research centres, communities, individuals. While with this proposal we fully agree with this assumption, we think it is time to abandon the idea of a “knowledge transfer”, as a good that can be moved from the scientific arena into policy making or into administrative practices. The questions that we wish to ask are who should know what, who actually knows, and if knowledge produced in various ways and fields is effective in achieving disaster risk reduction and climate change prevention and adaptation. Three issues seem particularly relevant to explore: - Fragmentation and separations of arenas (i.e. Scientists, Public and private agencies or organizations in the field of prevention) - Changes that have occurred in risk knowledge management strategies overtime - Knowledge management about risk in times of crisis. The main objective of this proposal is to frame a knowledge management system for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation that may be considered as a comprehensive reference for establishing, reinforcing, or revising current prevention, mitigation and adaptation strategies. Such knowledge system will embody what has been achieved in different arenas and by different social groups in the field of prevention, preparedness and adaptation. In order to do so, a circular process between scientific and technical analysis and dissemination will be developed, so as to make use of a wider expertise and reach a larger audience. We want to use some of the dissemination activities as small tests of what deem should be done “at large” for creating an effective development, sharing, and maintenance of knowledge.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Researchers are hoping to mitigate the effects of natural disasters and climate change-induced weather hazards by improving knowledge sharing between experts in the field.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Natural hazards such as flooding or earthquakes can have disastrous societal, environmental and economic impacts. Disaster risk reduction (DRR) is an approach to lessen hazard damage by, for example, reducing exposure, increasing preparedness and giving early warning of impending events.

Effectively implementing DRR requires widespread knowledge dissemination to international agencies, governments, disaster planners and civil society organisations. The EU-funded http://www.know4drr.polimi.it/ (KNOW-4-DRR) (Enabling knowledge for disaster risk reduction in integration to climate change adaptation) project seeks to mitigate disasters by investigating how this knowledge is created and shared.

Through workshops and seminars, KNOW-4-DRR is identifying barriers to disseminating knowledge. It is also improving bridges for sharing information across a range of players.

In addition, researchers have established living labs involving national, interregional and local decision makers in Italy, Spain and Vietnam. In these case studies, disasters in each country are used as laboratories for testing and applying disaster responses and management decisions in real-life situations.

The living labs will enable KNOW-4-DRR to build models and tools for collecting, mapping and evaluating impacts from disasters. These models will be used to build a knowledge database supporting the multidisciplinary and multi-agency work needed during the different phases of a disaster response.

Since climate change will possibly increase the severity and frequency of hazards, KNOW-4-DRR is also integrating climate change adaptation (CCA) within the broad DRR concept. CCA requires taking appropriate action, such as improving water efficiency, adapting building codes or building flood defences, in anticipation of extreme weather events.

KNOW-4-DRR will help to ensure that EU Member States, particularly those most affected by climate change, can limit the socioeconomic impact of natural disasters.
