Equitable Systemic Design For Disaster Risk Reduction


[Re]Integrate the tested prototype(s) strategically to be compatible with relevant institutional and organizational cultures, structures, workflows, decision processes, and resources.

Reasons to Use:

    • Unclear what implementation & deployment success is

    • Unsure about the viability of implementation & deployment

    • Complex implementation & deployment context

    • Transition out of and into problem-solving, future research, & standard operation

Outcomes of Success:

    • Vision, goals, objectives, & metrics for integration success

    • Confidence in viability and belief in scalability

    • Strategy for achieving inclusive evidence-driven change

    • Connection to improved research, practice, and inclusive problem-solving

Objectives of Process Steps:

1. Characterize and detail the context in which the proposed solution needs to be implemented

2. Define the vision, goals, objectives, and metrics of successful implementation

3. Assess the roles, responsibilities, resources, and timing that will enable successful implementation within the constraints of the context

4. Consider the implications of the process outcomes for future practice, research, and inclusive problem-solving
