This work plan is part of the thematic project Waterproofing data: engaging stakeholders in sustainable flood risk governance for urban resilience, whose purpose is to understand governance of water-related risks with a focus on the cultural and social aspects of data management. In order to contribute in achieving the overall objective of the project, this work plan aims to meet two goals. First, understand data practices of decision makers at the National Center for Monitoring and Early Warning of Natural Disasters (CEMADEN), the Emergency Management Center of the city of São Paulo (CGE) and the Government of Acre. Then, it aims to organize and conduct workshops and public exhibitions of results obtained in order to facilitate transformations in data management practices. The expected results are: a) meetings and workshops with stakeholders in São Paulo; b) development of a qualitative translation technique for existing and potential data flows between agencies, local government and citizens (data diaries); c) publications on this new technique; d) three workshops on transformative practices; e) three written recommendations on transformations in data management; f) two local exhibitions.
