SHELTER considers all the steps of disaster management: prevention, preparedness, response and recovery, through an iterative approach which ensures a progressive increase in resilience. The project builds upon heritage vulnerability assessment, exposure and hazards characteristics and on a data management strategy able to bring together different sources of information. Knowledge generated will serve for evidence decision-making in the prevention phase and establishment of contingency plans in the preparedness phase. A system thinking perspective allows understanding how different components within a historic area interact, which are the involved variables, their dependencies and the dynamic forces that affect their sensitiveness or adaptive capacity. Information gathered and analysed will serve as a basis for the recovery phase where, lesson learned, traditional knowledge and circular economy solutions will ensure sustainable reconstruction and resilience improvement of historic areas.
