Objective of the project

To promote a transparent and participatory process involving citizens, entities and association in the emergency response and reconstruction phases

Context analysis

On the 24th of August 2016 Central Italy and particularly the area near the borders of the Umbria, Lazio, Abruzzo and Marche regions was hit by a major earthquake. The earthquake caused a large number of human casualties and significant damages to infrastructures including houses, schools etc. After this first earthquake, the area was hit by other earthquakes in October/November 2016 and then again in January 2017. These earthquakes provoked some structural damages but the number of victims involved was significantly lower than in August 2016. After the initial emergency phase, the situation in the area has remained extremely difficult with people who had left the area facing challenges coming back as they feel unsafe and no longer connected to their places of origin, people suffering from post-traumatic disorders  symptoms as well as challenges related to the management of the reconstruction process by institutions which is slow and not always transparent and participatory.
