Projects in a nutshell (5 minutes each)
Session 1: Understanding of cascading effects
This session is concerned with what cascading effects are and why they evolve (not how cascading effects are modelled).
Session 2: Modelling of cascading effects
The idea for this session is to address different modelling approaches, both from a technical and a social-science perspective.
World-Café (interactive sessions) on topics of the first two sessions
10-11 persons per table; 10 tables, 3 sessions á 20 minutes w/ 10 minutes in-between (each participants can visit three tables)
Session 3: Acting on cascading effects during crisis
Here, we want to deal with inter-organisational cooperation and information exchange with regard to the mitigation of cascading effects.
Session 4: Implementation of results and tools into practice
In this last area, we will focus on problems and opportunities of implementing the developed tools pre-, during and post-crisis, both regarding crisis management and policy.
Wrap-up of World-Café tables: presentation and discussion of results in the plenum
