Citizen empowerment through technologies focused on local traditions


Empowerment of local communities can be also facilitated through the recognition and the valorisation of safer technologies focused on local tradition and culture (and/or on local knowledge), influencing, among others, ownership. This factor has never been mentioned in the European cases analysed, but, conversely, in two cases outside Europe: the project "Reducing Vulnerability of School Children to Earthquakes" promoted in the Asia-Pacific Region and the UNCRD project in Gujarat/India (for sources see original document).
