Abstract: There is space for improved scientific support within Member States and the European Commission in disaster risk policy-making, early warning systems and disaster response. This reports constitutes the second phase in a study of JRC on the topic. The “smart practices” presented are examples of Science Policy Interfaces in practice that could be transferred to other countries considering institutional and socio-economic context. The report is based on collection and analysis of publicly available material. The study will be followed up with a third phase, including interviews with Member States. The conclusions allow to formulate a set of recommendations, most of which will be addressed by further research at the JRC as part of the Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre.
