Abstract

Recent crises and disasters, both natural (e.g. Eyjafjal-lajökull 2010) or man-made (e.g. Deepwater Horizon 2010) have led to the conclusion that there is a need for a resilient approach to preparedness and management of such events. In this context, the DARWIN project aims to improve response to expected and unexpected crises affecting critical infrastructures and social structures by developing resilience guidelines and innovative training modules for crisis management. The guidelines will cover essential resilience abilities of stakeholders to anticipate, monitor, respond, adapt, learn and evolve, to ensure efficient operation in the face of crisis.
