  • 1. The Role of Networks in Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation Past, Present and Future - Sharing Experiences Tuesday 27 - Wednesday 28 May 2014 University of Salzburg Department of Geoinformatics - Z_GIS The risk from natural hazards is projected to further increase in many regions due to a growing exposure of human activities often combined with increased vulnerability and the projected increase in frequency and intensity of hazards due to effects of global warming. For the development and implementation of (more) effective risk reduction policies, a close collaboration and knowledge exchange between decision makers, the scientific community, the private sector and civil society is needed. In practice, however, knowledge on disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation is often fragmented within, and among the different stakeholders, and thus not adequately incorporated in decisions on disaster risk reduction and the implementation of risk mitigation and adaptation measures. This has been identified as an important reason, why the significant increase in available knowl- edge on natural disasters and their causes and drivers is not as effective as expect- ed in minimising disaster losses. Networks will likely take on an increasingly significant role for DRR and CCA because of their capacity to bring stakeholders together to share experiences, increase the knowledge base and thus facilitate improved decision-making by stakeholders in policy and practice. This workshop aims to bring together representatives of various networks from the DRR and CCA community – as well as any complementary fields - in order to identify synergies, develop common understanding of the challenges being addressed by the networks and the approaches being used, and find new ways of working together.

  • 2. • >> The role of networks in DRR and CCA • Creating the link between CCA and DRR: Discovering synergies, commonalities and individualities • Current “success strategies” of networks: What are key factors for the durability and sustainability of networks? • Reflecting on the role of networks: Function, added value, approaches, and tools to DRR and CCA Networks and their role in the creation of knowledge, its shar- ing, transfer and exchange • The impact of networks on decision-making by stakeholders in policy and practise: Can networks bridge scales and help find trade- offs between issues? >> Looking forward: Is an increased collaboration between net- works desired and/or reasonable? KeyQuestions The Role of Networks in DRR and CCA Past, present and future - sharing experiences 27-28 May 2014, University of Salzburg Interfaculty Department of Geoinformatics - Z_GIS

  • 5. In agreement with the workshop organisers, the moderator will rely on the Metaplan© Method to conduct the interactive workshop. The method consists of techniques, which facilitate discussions in a participatory and goal-oriented manner, and serves to structure work processes in groups, projects and networks. The role of the facilitator is to catalyze discussions and to structure collective thinking. The aim is to gain insights and discover potential for action. The workshop strategy has been planned to follow a certain dramaturgy or com- mon thread: introduction, identifying topics or issues at hand, working through subject matters, integration of findings and consenting on the way forward. Lead questions and interaction techniques have been identified together with the organisers in order to purposefully advance exchange and give the workshop direction. Metaplan elements that will be employed at the workshop: • Exploring the factors that cur- rently hamper the uptake of knowledge developed by the various stakeholders and its in- tegration into decision-making and implementation • Working questions will be elab- orated together with partici- pants • Moderated deliberations • Continuous visualisation in the Metaplan Format; that is contributions will be written on cards by the partici- pants, then pinned by the facilitator (and clustered where appropriate with the help of the group) on boards. A variety of card formats and colors will be used. • Inputs to steer discussions • Alteration between plenary work and small group work • Small groups work along a common scheme and visualize their discussion by means of cards and a board • Conclusion with recommendations, steps ahead and follow-up activities • Photographic protocol of all boards to document flow and results of discus- sions.

  • 8. The overall aim of the FP7-funded KNOW-4-DRR project is to contribute to an improved use of knowledge and co-operation among the different actors in the field of disaster risk reduction and climate change adaption by: • exploring the factors that currently hamper the uptake of knowledge devel- oped by the various stakeholders and its integration into decision-making and implementation; • developing a Knowledge Management Framework (KMF) that provides a co- herent structure and set of tools to facilitate the exchange and use of knowl- edge among the relevant stakeholders in policy and practice, as well as its maintenance over time; • contributing to a direct exchange among the various actors in the field of dis- aster risk reduction through a series of interactive events; • providing information about current policy development in the field of disaster risk reduction on the European level and internationally; • providing specific recommendation for policy makers on how to improve the integration of knowledge in the field of disaster risk reduction. KNOW-4-DRR website: www.know4drr.polimi.it As a partner of the KNOW-4-DRR project, the Interfaculty Department of Geo- informatics – Z_GIS (www.zgis.at) is an interdisciplinary department established at Paris-Lodron University Salzburg. It is dedicated to fundamental and applied re- search, integrated spatial analysis, outreach activities and networking, profession- al education and training. Z_GIS is strongly involved in EU-funded RTD activities, development cooperation and educational projects and is actively supporting and promoting the GMES initiative. In co-operation with partners in many national and international research and consulting projects, Z_GIS has gained considerable experience in the provision of spatial information products for disaster and crisis management as well as climate change adaptation.
