Validation of the Management of past Crisis and Disasters (IDIMT Conference,Sept.2016)

Interoperability of stakeholders is a predominant requirement of crisis and disaster management. Within the EU-project EPISECC a concept of a common information space is under development in order to facilitate European crisis and disaster management. A pre-requirement to set up such an information space is the in depth analysis of the management of past disasters with focus on interoperability. For this purpose an inventory on the management of selected past disasters was developed. The information for the inventory was achieved by systematic expert interviews using specifically developed online questionnaires. Multiple crisis and disaster managers that are active nationally, internationally or on both levels were interviewed in order to obtain the necessary information. Selected results obtained by this inventory are described in the frame of this paper.
