ReMapRisk is a a community-led methodology developed by Urban ARK researchers based at the Bartlett Development Planning Unit (DPU), University College London (UCL) and applied in two city contexts (Karonga, Malawi and Freetown, Sierra Leone) as a means of documenting cycles of urban risk accumulation or ‘risk traps’ to support grounded and informed action planning.
The tool allows users to interrogate and visualize specific enquires on the hazard profile, vulnerabilities and capacities to act of city dwellers and various support organisations, it also brings to the fore the voices and experiences of those directly affected by risk traps and their perspectives on the type of actions required.
