Integrating Risk Perception and Action to enhance Civil Protection-Citizen interaction, (RiskPACC) is a three-year project that focuses on increasing disaster resilience throughout society by closing the ‘risk perception action gap’ (RPAG). The risk perception action gap can be understood as the mismatch between how risk is perceived and acted upon, and its actual occurrence. Notably, perceptions of risk and risk management actions taken by civil protection agencies and the public have been shown to be often misaligned.
