Disaster Risk Reduction – increasing the resilience level of households and neighbourhood

Summary of the project

REcheck project will develop a interactive REcheck (resilience check) which will assess the preparedness of individuals and groups. Different types for accessing different groups (households, neighbours, subject related groups) on grassroots level – the so called REcheck events (incl. assessment, training and networking) will be developed and tailored to fit target group, urban setting and cultural context.

  • Strengthening resilience of urban households and neighbourhoods by developing a resilience check & using and adapting available awareness raising tools
  • Testing different formats for accessing neighbourhood networks
  • Testing the resilience-check in different urban settings
  • Strengthening local networks to support help amongst neighbours and resilience in emergencies
  • Establishing a methodology for assessing and mapping preparedness
