In collaboration with the Ministry of Public Security, Cité-ID Living Lab will develop and test three approaches to communicating risk. The lessons learned will then be transferred to practitioners in municipalities and at the Ministry of Public Security.
This research project is an opportunity to test three approaches to communicating risk to groups of citizens. In order to gain the broadest possible perspective, these approaches will address four different types of hazard: floods, landslides, accidents involving hazardous materials, and earthquakes. Participants will complete a quantitative questionnaire before and after the communication activity in order to measure its effect on attitudes and behaviour.
Cité-ID will analyze results and transfer scientific and technical knowledge, along with the instruments developed and refined through the project, to representatives of the Ministry of Public Security and municipal officials and staff.
This project will be undertaken between January 2019 and March 2022.
