We present in this deliverable a brief though thorough selection of scientific papers and reports describing / discussing best practices and proposing guidelines for communication and decision making during earthquake and volcanic crises. The range of environmental system crises of interest for the project RIs is certainly broader (encompassing extreme weather (also related to climate change), avalanches, mudslides, coastal erosion, instability of infrastructure due to permafrost thawing, to mention just a few), and some of the project RIs apparently have very limited roles in crisis communication and management to date. Even so, we believe that the present literature review is broadly relevant to different disciplines and can be used as checklist / reference for scientists who, in the future, will face the challenges posed by communicating natural hazards and risks to the general public and the authorities before, during, and after an environmental crisis. The main results of this deliverable are: (a) a selective collection of heterogeneous sources of information into one single document easily accessible to the project RIs and stakeholders; (b) a summary of up-to-date recommendations and guidelines on communication and decision making under uncertainty and; (c) the compilation of a survey to be used as a self-assessment tool of the procedures implemented by each RI with active roles in environmental crisis communication and decision making.
