An important factor is the prevalence of a sense of social/mutual trust and respect inside the communities (that facilitate social cohesion). Beyond the literature, this factor has been recorded in the case of Badia in South Tyrol-IT and in the case of heat waves in London-UK and, outside Europe, in a case study on earthquake at Teheran districts' level (where a positive correlation between sensitization/social trust and citizens' interest in participating in the disaster management cycle has been recorded).
