After 3 years of research, the DARWIN project is happy to present its concluding paper entitled ‘Resilience Management Guidelines for Critical Infrastructures, Practical Solutions Addressing Expected and Unexpected Events’. The paper presents the results of the H2020 DARWIN project and a roadmap for the future.
The creation of the DARWIN Resilience Management Guidelines (DRMG) are seen as the main result of the project. The DRMG are evolving guidelines, designed to improve the ability of stakeholders to monitor, anticipate and learn from crises, and thereby allow them to adapt and respond more effectively and operate more efficiently during disasters. These guidelines are not prescriptive. Instead, they enable organizations to have a critical view of their own crisis management activities. The target beneficiaries of DARWIN are crisis management managers and practitioners responsible for public safety, such as critical infrastructures and service providers, which might be affected by a crisis, as well as the public and media.
This paper includes testimonials of end-users within and outside the consortium. It also includes plans for how they would enable sustainability through an engaged community of practice. It represents an invitation to explore the content of the guidelines, to encourage its use and further developments of the resilience management.
