emBRACE Handbook - Methods

The emBRACE project is methodologically rich.This Methods section of the Handbook introduces the separate reports prepared for:

  • Agent Based Modelling
  • Data Collection for Health & Social Services 
  • Disaster Databases of Human Impacts in Europe
  • Disaster Footprints
  • Resilience Indicators 
  • Social Learning
  • Social Network Analysis
  • In addition, project partners used a number of standard quantitative and qualitative methods in the case studies in particular.

Agent Based Modelling
This part of the work concerns computer simulation models (agent-based models), and its focus of enquiry is on resilience at the municipality, organisation, or city level. Agent based models can be good test beds for thinking about decision-making and management alternatives in many different human domains including those linked with transformative resilience to natural disasters.
