Call for experts No.1 17/02/2022

The Italian Center for Research on Risk Reduction CI3R is launching a call for 2 experts in risk and crisis communication in civil protection to compile the third thematic paper of ROADMAP, titled “Good practices in Building Back Better and Leaving No One Behind”.

The ROADMAP project has the main objective to establish a European “Doctrine on disaster risk and crisis management”, funded on the mutual cooperation between scientific communities and DRM authorities. The doctrine, that is intended as “a shared understanding of disaster management between decision-makers and scientific actors”, will be based on selected experiences, good practices and implemented solutions in EU Member States. Three thematic papers will be prepared on relevant themes in the DRM field. The selection of topics for the thematic papers and their critical review is achieved through synergic interaction with a suitably established Advisory Group (AG), formed by experts both on science and decision making in DRM.

Building Back Better (BBB) and Leaving No One Behind (LNOB) are two UN policies aiming at fulfilling two Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), namely, SDG3 to ensure healthy lives and well-being, and SDG10, to reduce inequality within and between nations, while acknowledging that health equity is vital to achieving all the SDGs. BBB and universally accessible approaches during the response and reconstruction phases are also recognized as a priority in the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.

The third paper, with provisional title “Good practices in Building Back Better and Leaving No One Behind”, aims at mapping and evaluating good practices in Building Back Better and Leaving No One Behind to improve the Disaster Risk Reduction.

The experts are expected, first, to identify challenges according to certain categories (e.g. political, socio-economic, technological, etc.), then to identify crises and disasters where good practices in the BBB and LNOB are described and analyzed, and finally to produce a meaningful appraisal of good practices, especially relevant for risk and crisis managers at EU and national level.

The work will start as soon as the positions are filled and is expected to be finalized by end of April 2022. Kick-off and periodical coordination meetings with editors are planned.

The remuneration for such work is 4150 Euros (gross of deductions payable by the employee and tax charges – payable by CI3R)
