Flooding is estimated to be most serious possible potential shock for Belgrade due to heightened awareness after the floods in 2014. Heavy rainfall and raised level of the rivers Sava and Kolubara in municipality of Obrenovac within the City of Belgrade region, located 30 kilometers southwest of Belgrade’s city center, caused flooding in an estimated 90% of the urban area. Flooding greatly affected buildings, infrastructure and agricultural land, especially in the areas situated along the Sava and Danube rivers. The floods had a particularly damaging effect on hygiene, public health and water supply. The impact of flooding on the productive activities of agriculture, trade and industry and housing negatively affected economic growth, with a corresponding impact on livelihoods, income and employment, and a significant decline in living conditions in the affected areas. As a response to lessons learned from the flooding City of Belgrade identified several priorities. Except the n...ecessity to conduct a comprehensive Belgrade Risk Assessment and establish flood prevention systems and systems for mitigation of post-flood environmental, health, and economical risks, it was underlined the importance to establish better risk disaster management and communications, and to enhance and equip civil protection. The post disaster experience showed that many of these priorities are tightly correlated in a numerous ways with smallest social units – households. Therefore, starting with the assumption that use of smart information and communication technologies and motivating collaborative techniques enables development of cooperative instrument for efficient improvement household resilience, the academy team performed action research with a small communi........ .....enacting, and to evaluate its potential uses in all phases of potential shock or disasters. This paper represents the overview of methodology and experimental results achieved by the joint efforts of students, teachers and community.
