The roadmap ‘Public empowerment policies for crisis management’ aims to chart directions for further research and implementation supporting human resilience. Aimed at policymakers and researchers, it reports core problems and gaps identified based on research conducted by the teams that composed the international consortium of the project Public Empowerment Policies for Crisis Management (PEP).

It assesses the current level of development of public empowerment policies across Europe, examines this variation in different countries, and addresses the need for sharing best practices and guideliness and lowering barriers in policymaking and further research.
