Abstract

In this position paper, we focus on the learning issues of the flood-endangered communities, situated in the Lower Sava Valley. The main issue and position expose characteristics of the loosely coupled system in the context of learning and knowledge management. We detected learning anomalies within the assessed flood response system, which we selected as a research example of the loosely coupled system. Therefore, we conducted a statistical analysis of the flood data and designed a fuzzy knowledge evaluation system, to be able to grade community learning. Finally, we designed learning improvement mechanism that would significantly contribute to the flood response system effectiveness and higher community self-reliance and flood resilience.
