Resilient Europe and Societies by Innovating Local Communities (RESILOC)

RESILOC objective is to study and develop strategies, processes, methodologies and instruments for Europe, that will be validated in four different local communities, to increase disaster resilience by:
•  Understanding risk perception mechanisms and risk awareness in diverse communities and for diverse risks;
•  Analysing the different approaches adopted at local level, in Europe and elsewhere in the World, to face emergency situations and improve resiliency, with particular emphasis to communities in unfavourable socio-economic conditions; 
•  Comparing the effectiveness and potential of existing strategies, instruments and solutions, and identify adaptation and customisation to be validated in field trials on the basis of the two above points;
RESILOC will contribute to a more profound comprehension of the European resilience mechanisms and to the identification of the best approaches to create more resilient communities.
