R3C - RESPONSIBLE RISK RESILIENCE CENTRE
A new reference point for research on Resilience
R3C is the first Italian research centre with specific tasks to promote adapting and resilient strategies to address natural and humanʼs related risks ensuring the good safety of territorial and cultural heritage.
R3C aims at studying environmental and socio-economic vulnerabilities of territorial systems offering resilient models and solutions to support institutions and local communities to address the challenges posed by the ongoing global transition adequately.
WHAT IS TERRITORIAL RESILIENCE? R3C DEFINES A PROACTIVE MEANING FOR SPATIAL PLANNING
we assume that “territorial resilience” is an emerging concept capable of aiding with the decision. We purpose to define territorial resilience as an “emerging concept” since the SETSs approach considers the dynamic non-linear interaction between the endogenous characters of the system and its exogenous transient shocks, chronic stresses and their sudden or slow changing conditions that affects both the patrimony and the governance system. In this view, urban planning is part of the resilience itself since it considers in a general an holistic view the SETSs by a normative and urban design perspective and therefore assumes the co-evolutionary vision of communities.
