Authors: Tim A. Majchrzak and Mihoko Sakurai, CIEM, University of Agder

Project deliverable: D4.3

30 November 2016

This report was prepared in the framework of Work Package (WP) 4, i.e. the WP that is developing the Resilience Engagement and Communication Tool, and in particular a toolbox and a prototype. Specifically, this report is the third deliverable (D4.3) of this work package. It presents design principles for the use of social network services to promote citizen engagement. This is facilitated by the task of integrating social media communication with citizens as part of the Resilience Information Portal that is also currently finalized. Overall, WP4 provides a collaborative environment that facilitates awareness and engagement among key stakeholders and partners in resilience building activities.

Project deliverable: D3.1

30 November 2016

This report focuses on the first tool explaining the methodology used to develop it in addition to describe its maturity stages. Literature review was carried out in order to gather information about worldwide approaches regarding resilience. Furthermore, Group Model Building workshops have been arranged during the SMR Project first year to gather the needed requirements for the development of this Resilience Maturity Model from experts. A Delphi process and a validation workshop have also been carried out to further validate the Maturity Model and ensure its replicability and transferability to other CITIES in Europe.

Project deliverable: D5.2

21 October 2016

The aim of this report is to provide important input for the finalization of the aforementioned tool. The report also demonstrates and highlights the main outcomes of the kick-off workshops, the organized webinars between the tier-1 and tier-2 partner CITIES, as well as the input received and the results of the review workshop, which took place in Kristiansand, Norway, on 21 September 2016. During this review workshop, the tier-1 CITIES provided collective input having participated in the first pilot implementation (out of 5) of the project, while the tier-2 CITIES shared their additional feedback having followed the peer-reviewing activities within WP5. The report summarizes the recommendations of the partner CITIES for the finalization of the tool, assesses the impact of the tool for the stakeholders for each tier-1 CITY identified in D5.1 and states some general conclusions on the pilot implementation process.

Project deliverable: D2.6

30 June 2016

The Preliminary Resilience Maturity Model comprises five maturity stages to guide cities through the ideal path of building resilience. Each maturity stage contains a description of the objectives of that maturity stage, the stakeholders that need to be engaged in each stage in addition to a list of policies that must be developed to achieve the objetives defined in that maturity stage. This tool will be used by local governements and other stakeholders in order to assess and classify themselves in their corresponding maturity stage. Once CITIES know in which maturity stage they are, the maturity model will help them to identify the optimal path for the evolution of the resilience building process.

Project deliverable: D1.4

30 June 2016

This report is the result of the work carried out in the fourth task in WP1 of SMR. The findings of the previous three tasks have been processed by a Delphi method process involving experts, including selected participants from relevant EU FP7 projects. The general outcome of this report is an expert assessment of resilience implementation approaches and elements that can be adapted to relevant critical infrastructures and the role of the population, rescuers and the media with a view to derive a resilience maturity model (WP2). The resilience maturity model will be further refined in WP3. An early version of a general maturity model is an output of this task, and serves and a vehicle for transfer of outcome together with workshops in WP2. Delphi is a systematic and iterative process for structuring a group communication process in order to obtain a consensus about a complex problem. The Delphi method consists of multiple rounds of questionnaires providing feedback among informants.

31 May 2016

This report takes stock of the first activities developed in the framework of Work Package (WP) 5 of the SMR Project, i.e. the WP dedicated to tool testing with and to exchange between the cities that are part of the SMR Consortium. In particular, during the first project year, ICLEI European Secretariat, in close cooperation with the three tier-1 cities (i.e. Kristiansand, San Sebastian/Donostia and Glasgow) and their respective research partners (i.e. CIEM, TECNUN and the University of Strathclyde) organized three ‘Kick-off Workshops’ in Kristiansand, Donostia/San Sebastian and Glasgow (the latter is scheduled to take place after publication of this report, in June 2016). The workshops gathered the most relevant stakeholders of each tier-1 city, presenting the project goals and outputs, introducing participants to the project’s resilience management approach, and de facto kick starting the pilot implementation of the tools in the tier-1 cities.

Project deliverable: D4.2

31 May 2016

D4.2 compiles design principles for the use of social networking services to promote transdisciplinary collaboration. It does so based on a series of extensive interviews with the CITIES and stakeholders. Interviews were done in a semi-structured fashion and we allowed for open discussion. This enabled us to gain broad insights from the work with the city partners.

Authors: Patricia Maraña, Josune Hernantes and Jose Mari Sarriegi TECNUN, University of Navarra

Project deliverable: D2.5

30 May 2016

Four workshops have been conducted (in Riga, Bristol, Rome and Vejle) within the scope of this project, whose main aim was to gather practical requirements from CITIES regarding resilience and its operationalization process. The aim of this report is to analyse and synthetize all the information gathered during these workshops to make explicit the practical requirements CITIES have regarding resilience and set the basis to develop the Resilience Management Guideline and its five supporting tools. Meeting the requirements identified will be compulsory to develop a Resilience Management Guideline compatible with the current managerial procedures within the city and the CITIES’ expectations regarding resilience.
