🚨Paper out in Judgment and Decision Making journal: After the virtual flood! My latest #VirtualReality #EconTwitter experiment on #riskcommunication and the last one to be published from my thesis #PhDone sjdm.org/journal/20/200… summary🧵with GIFs and pictures👇
MOTIVATION: people who experienced a disaster invest more in prevention (#DRR). But we don’t want to break dikes 😬What also helps are coping values: feeling of being able to install measures and the belief that they help. Idea: #VR experience to show risk and measures 2/9
METHOD: 108 people showed up for the VR experience + investment game + survey in the Amsterdam @networkinstvu lab. At the same time a control group of 276 Amsterdammers did the investment game + survey online. 4 weeks later VR group online follow-up (78 completed) 3/9

THREAD: Some interesting uses of the @TwitterAPI to explore #extremeweather events in relation to #climatechange. I found the cognitive dissonance explored in the #wildfires in Australia to hold up based on…developer.twitter.com/en/use-cases/b…
…research that has been carried out. This is where #socialscience can be a leader in engaging with the public. Work that I’m doing now creates spaces for conversations that explore #severeweather risk, focusing on issues of shelter access for those without a range of resources
…we help #communities explore their options, including building consensus on alternative shelter provision, especially where funding is an issue in rural communities. We work with faith groups who have strong #trust and social networks alongside other stakeholders to explore…

Today is International Day of #Disaster Risk Reduction. A recent report found investment uneven/poorly directed “Every US$100 spent on disaster-related development aid, only 50 cents are invested in protecting development from the impact of disasters” #DRR undrr.org/news/covid-19-…
The bulk of the spending, US119.8 billion was earmarked for emergency/ #disaster response and US$7.7 billion was spent on reconstruction, relief, and rehabilitation. This is the wrong way around. It is short-sighted and undermines climate change adaption by poorer countries.
The lack of foresight and investment has been directly seen in the impact of #COVID, as well as its response. Investment and actions taken sooner, based on the assessment and advice of experts and based on modeling and exercises (such as Cygnus in the UK) should have been enacted

This is #SantaBarbara, California. It really is a beautiful place to live, but expensive too. (Secretly - or maybe not - I would LOVE to live and work here). It is also where I carried out my #PhD fieldwork, Living my best #phdlife...
Like many places in Southern California, there are a number of #naturalhazards that can and do impact on the city and its surrounding County:

Wildfires 🔥🔥
Mudslides ⛰️ 🪨
Earthquakes 🏚️🏚️
Tsunamis 🌊🌊

I’m sick/tired of politicians claiming that they will build back better, having stolen the idea from the UN disasters strategy: “Building Back Better (BBB) is a strategy aimed at reducing the risk to the people of nations and communities in the wake of future disasters and shocks Image
...The BBB approach integrates #disaster risk reduction measures into the restoration of physical infrastructure, social systems and shelter, and the revitalization of livelihoods, economies and the environment.” There is little detail in UK/US politicians co-opting of the phrase
It has become a meaningless mantra. There is no focus on communities, because they don’t try and understand what a ‘community’ is or learn about its social networks, ties and culture. This is what underpins social systems as defined in the Sendai Framework for Action on #DRR.
