Abstract: In Europe, efforts to protect both the citizen and the environment face a continuing challenge from a wide range of risks that arise from both natural and technological hazards. The lessons learned from the systematic analysis of the evolution of past events and the circumstances that facilitated their occurrence are of paramount importance for future risk reduction and priority setting in terms of vulnerability management. This paper proposes a methodology for learning lessons that addresses the following steps: accident and disaster investigation and reporting, data collection and analysis, generation and implementation of lessons learned. The methodology is demonstrated by introducing the MARS and NEDIES knowledge bases, which are two of the European Community’s systems for collecting existing and producing new lessons learned, and exchanging information on the management of technological accidents and natural disasters.
