Evaluation of DRR Plans


Barquet K. and Cumiskey L. (2015). Evaluation of DRR plans. Unpublished report (deliverable D4.2) RISC-KITProject.

This report shows the results from the implementation of the MCA in eight RISC-KIT cases that highlights several key lessons for future DRR projects with regards to a) the importance of sufficient preparation for participatory sessions; b) stakeholder interaction and inclusion in the DRR projects; c) the way research results are presented to non-research communities; d) and the challenges of implementing single-approaches to diverse contexts.

The Multi-Criteria Analysis (MCA) is one of the five tools used to assess the proposed measures in each of the RISC-KIT case studies with respect to criteria that capture the key dimensions of the decision-making process. The analysis is based on a one-time workshop with key stakeholders in each of the cases. In this workshop, stakeholders systematically score and weigh out options against three selected criteria (feasibility, acceptability, and sustainability).

The Resilience-Increasing Strategies for Coasts – toolKIT (RISC-KIT) is a research project aimed at delivering ready-to-use methods, tools and management approaches to reduce risk from coastal storms and increase the resilience of Europe’s coastal zones.
