CARISMAND project was represented at a workshop which took place on 3 April 2017 in Rome and was dedicated to a GFDRR* flagship report, Unbreakable: Building the Resilience of the Poor in the Face of Natural Disasters, and the latest GFDRR initiative: The City Resilience Program.
The Unbreakable report proposes a “resilience policy” package that would help poor people cope with the consequences of adverse weather and other extreme natural events. This includes early warning systems, improved access to personal banking, insurance policies, and social protection systems (like cash transfers and public works programs) that could help people better respond to and recover from shocks.
The City Resilience Program (CRP) aims to support city governments in improving their social, physical and financial resilience to adverse events through assessments, diagnostics and investments in policy, systems, infrastructure and finance.
CARISMAND was presented by Gabriele Quinti from the Laboratory of Citizenship Sciences (LSC), Italy who briefly explained highlights of the project.
