During a six-month definition project, basic principles for the project proposal REVISE, submitted in the end of 2018, were laid out. As a transdisciplinary project, REVISE will address the gaps between day-to-day emergency control and disaster risk management in Iran by adapting instruments of integrated disaster risk management (IDRM), tested in Germany, to an Iranian context. In this context, building collapse and severe earthquake pose as example scenarios and volunteer work is examined as a central resource for an IDRM with potential to grow.
