Description

COVALEX aims to establish a common and extended community of experts on the experience, geographical coverage and diverse sectoral networks in hydrometeorological multi-hazards events. Science can practically challenge the phenomena, science can practically challenge those phenomena and foster the processes of prevention, preparation and testing. It pools four DG ECHO networks and project-driven first responders communities, mainstreams the evidence- and science-based risk governances and interoperability communications approach to decision-makers, rescue and humanitarian actors. The Community will build capacity by engaging 11 partners from 10 countries and their networked members. Though we bring together, promote and strengthen the capacities and knowledge of experts, decisionmakers, politicians and multipliers as public service providers, media, NGOs. We build a databank of experts that can be further engaged and involved in international and local case studies and events. We bring academia, practitioners, and decision-makers for multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral cooperation to apply scientific knowledge to disaster risk management (DRM), accentuating hydrometeorological and technological driven disasters. Main outputs: pipeline with scenario-based exercises, living-learning content combined with open-source support tools for decision-makers, scientific community events, including hackathons, themed discussions and boost of science for resilience, activated over 200 experts in the COVALEX database, delivered three scenario-based experiences trained over 200 persons, one common framework for engaging all actors, scientists and IT developers for greater use of human-centered scientific approach to resilience and civil protection.
