Co-design of a Crowdsourcing Solution for Disaster Risk Reduction

  • 1. ISMB


Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) is a complex field in which a huge amount of data is used to plan preventive measures, get prepared to natural disasters, and effectively respond when they strike. This work focuses on the definition of a co-design methodology to integrate a crowdsourcing solution in the DRR processes. We define the proposed methodology, and implement it involving operators and experts in the DRR domain (crisis managers, technical services, first responders). We show how a participatory design approach helps in the design of a crowdsourcing solution that experts are willing to integrate into their DRR procedures.
