Nowadays, the number and the magnitude of natural hazards are increasing. During emergency situations different forms of cooperation take place, including the crowdsourcing, which is envisioned by many Disaster Risk Management approaches to enable citizens to support the emergency management process. However, crowdsourcing is a challenging paradigm as it requires a sustained engagement in order to be effective. In this paper we propose a gamification strategy for crowdsourced Disaster Risk Management services aimed to increase awareness, engagement, and change people behaviors.
