English abstract

Objective: The present study was conducted to identify the indicators of the urban natural hazards information model based on meta-combination analysis in order to create a model. Methodology: In the first stage, the meta-combined method was used. Out of 337 documents related to the research topic, 140 documents were analyzed. To examine and modify the components obtained during the trans-combination of qualitative method (with Delphi approach) which has been done by using a survey of experts with a questionnaire. Thus, the method of the present study is a mixture of polynomials Findings: The research was reviewed in three parts (informants with 50 indicators, tools and media with 66 indicators, content of information messages with 78 indicators), local government organizations using civil society and the private sector in implementing policies They play an effective role. A large number of different information tools have not been seen as appropriate for the time of crisis and after the crisis, and determining the standard and appropriate information messages to the community has an effective role in informing about risks. Originality: This study has for the first time examined the identification of natural hazard information indicators in Iran. In addition, by defining the characteristics of informants, tools, and media, the content of the information message in three crisis situations such as the information roadmap By determining the share of informants and appropriate tools and the content of the standard message, provides the most effective way of reporting risks to officials in three crisis situations
