The recently published journal article “Participatory Assessment of Multi Risks in Urban Regions – The Case of Critical Infrastructures in Metropolitan Lima” describes a participatory approach to dealing with multi-risks using the example of the Lima metropolitan region, Peru. Co-authors Christian D. León and Gisela Wachinger from DIALOGIK look in particular at the question of what the barriers are in stakeholder communication. The results help to identify gaps in actors’ awareness of interdependencies and show the general criticalities of infrastructures with regard to both physical and actor-related factors. Furthermore, the analysis underlines specific cooperation and communication needs between different stakeholders but also indicates the requirement for a prioritization of sectors in contingency plans and spatial planning.
