TACTIC & POP-ALERT Conference

TACTIC and POP-ALERT Final Conference: IMPROVING PREPAREDNESS IN EUROPE THROUGH RISK COMMUNICATION AND COMMUNITY-BASED APPROACHES

Brussels, 15 – 16 March 2016

The POP-ALERT and TACTIC conference brought together researchers and practitioners interested in community preparedness from across Europe. The conference explored the following issues:

  • Getting communities ready to prepare: is preparedness possible for all types of hazard and what shapes communities’ preparedness?
  • Using and evaluating risk communication to influence preparedness: What works and what does not (under what kind of contexts)?
  • Perspectives of preparedness: views from the field
  • Using novel tools to improve preparedness, alerting and risk communication
  • Collaborating for preparedness: bringing scientific and practical perspectives of preparedness together
