Abstract: WP6 of MED-SUV aims at showing how the improvement of the monitoring system at the Italian Supersite volcanoes may contribute to better volcanic hazard assessment and to bridge the gap between science, mitigation and preparedness of volcanic disasters. For the purposes, throughout the project scientists and decision makers are working together trying to optimise procedures for improvement their mutual information exchange. To do this effectively and efficiently a management strategy needs to be defined and implemented in order to involve the key players and make them aware of the policy, sector and institutional context within which they are undertaking their work. Stakeholders Analysis is a crucial step to achieve specific objectives related to volcanic hazard assessment, evaluation, and preparedness and mitigation. Indeed management and science are interdependent so WP1 and WP6 need to strength their efforts in setting up a proper joint strategy to identify the different stakeholders, understand their needs, and to investigate their respective roles, resources, and capacities. Stakeholders Analysis, in fact, will enable us getting an overall view of what is needed to implement actions devoted to volcanic hazards by allowing us definition of proper guidelines to clearly define the role of scientists and that of decision makers during a volcanic emergency. Guidelines will state also the kinds of information the scientists should provide to decision makers in term of both short- and long-term hazard assessment. In this prospective, we expect that findings of the analysis will ensure that the resources available in the framework of MED-SUV are appropriately targeted to meet the objectives of the project and its stakeholders. We believe that Stakeholders Analysis, in compliance with EPOS implementation plan, could significantly contribute to the “Information for Societal Benefit” part of the GEO 2012-15 work plan at which MED-SUV has subscribed.
