The DARWIN Resilience Management Guidelines (DRMG) have been developed by the DARWIN project as a set of guiding principles to assist organisations in assessing and enhancing their own resilience. The Guidelines have been developed through a collaborative Wiki page and now have been released in a book format.
The DRMG have been developed over a three year research, consultation and evaluation process, involving more than 100 experts from multiple European countries. The Guidelines contain a set of Capability Cards which supply practical interventions for developing and enhancing specific management capabilities.
Organisations from across all levels and domains will find the DRMG useful for assessing a critical view of their own crisis management activities. The Guidelines have already been adapted and tested in emergency scenarios in the healthcare and aviation domain, but can equally be adapted for developing resilience to scenarios such as flooding, wildfires and terrorist attacks.
The Guidelines include specific interventions regarding roles and responsibilities, establishing networks and assessing community resilience – before, during and after a crisis.
The DRMG have been developed on the DARWIN Wiki, as this has supported the collaborative and evolutionary development of the Guidelines. The content of the Wiki as of September 2018 has been compiled and is presented in the DRMG Book.
