The role of social media and crowdsourcing on disaster resilience in Europe
Crisis management today is being enriched via social media and funded using crowdsourcing. However, the effectiveness of social media and crowdsourcing on European disaster resilience remains questionable due to the variations between disaster risk perception and vulnerability. The EU-funded LINKS project will develop a scheme for understanding, assessing and managing social media and crowdsourcing for European disaster resilience. The project will take into consideration the differences between disaster risk perception and vulnerability, disaster management processes and applied disaster community technologies across European communities. The project will be deployed and assessed in Denmark, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands by considering different disaster scenarios, management phases, and diverse socioeconomic and cultural environments.
