The aim of this work package is to define promotion of resilience and reduction of health risks associated with extreme weather events, particularly with flooding. These objectives will be developed and implemented as a part of collaborative efforts to share knowledge and to improve operative procedures across Europe. Key tasks are to:
- Coordinate the dissemination of data and publications resulting from the project;
- Identify key stakeholders and their needs. Stakeholders are expected to include supra-national organisations (European Commission, WHO); national governments, environmental and health organisations (National Departments of Health, National Platforms for Disaster Risk Reduction, Health Protection/Surveillance and Environment agencies); local governments, environmental and health organisations (Local Authorities, Local and regional health services, Resilience Forums); voluntary sector and NGOs; health professionals and general public;
- Provide targeted information sheets;
- Develop dissemination methods and tools, and design evaluation systems.
Tasks undertaken within work package 2 are expected to contribute to establishment of a network of policy makers and researches, including countries not directly involved in the project. The scope of the network is to improve the communication of results throughout the project, to ensure an efficient uptake of the evidence, and to develop adequate policy measures to improve preparedness for and adaptation to extreme weather events.
