Event description

Description

The Catalyst Project Evaluation Team at the University of Essex, warmly invites you to our event, showcasing the Resilience Policy Database and the Resilience Policy Proximity Index, which were designed to improve measures of resilience at national and local levels in the context of emergency planning and management.

The day will involve presentations from academics working in the areas of resilience, disaster and emergency management in different contexts (environmental, governance, legislative and regulatory). These will be followed by a presentation of the Resilience Policy Database and the Resilience Policy Proximity Index as well as the model and data that the team has been developing and a demonstration of how it can be used.
