A Participatory Game for Enhancing Disaster Risk Governance – now available in 5 languages!
Want to learn how to use the traditional knowledge held by your local community to reduce disaster risk?
With the aim of breaking language barriers and empowering communities, ICCROM is pleased to announce that its digital publication inSIGHT, is now available in Arabic, French, Georgian, and Spanish!
This participatory game offers its users the opportunity to build a common understanding of how the cultural and natural heritage of a place contributes to capacities for disaster risk reduction and sustainable development. It is intended for a wide range of institutions and individuals interested in developing community-centred disaster risk reduction initiatives, offering an empowering social experience. It involves residents of a city, town or village, from different age groups, as well as different professions and social backgrounds.
Playing inSIGHT will enable local governments, organizations and individuals, to promote the Sustainable Development Goal 13 on Climate Action, by recognizing the traditional knowledge and practices of a community that contribute to the sustainable management of natural resources in a given context. Such practices and knowledge could help mitigate and adapt to the risks induced by global climate change. Additionally, this game promotes a better understanding of the disaster risk, which in turn, helps to implement the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
Insights gained at the end of the game include:
- Clarity on what constitutes significant heritage for the people.
- Enhanced understanding of the root causes and chains of impacts that contribute to the creation of disaster risk in a given context.
- Recognition of how heritage may contribute to a community’s well-being and help to reduce the risk of disasters.
- Ideas for enhancing disaster resilience, which mainstream concerns for cultural heritage with the proactive engagement of the local community.
Download it, share it and start playing! Together we can build disaster resilience and sustain cultural heritage worldwide.
