Knowledge is power: Unlocking the potential for science and technology to enhance community resilience through knowledge exchange

This Humanitarian Practice Network paper seeks to address the challenge of using science and technology to build people's resilience to risks from natural hazards and human-induced disasters by analysing how formal scientific learning can support decision-making processes amongst people at risk and those trying to support them. Drawing on a series of case studies across regions, disciplines and sectors, it identifies generic learning and key characteristics regarding those forms of knowledge exchange which have resulted in tangible benefits for at-risk people.
