RISC-KIT in CORDIS News!
CORDIS, the Community Research and Development Information Service of EC published an article regarding RISC-KIT's Policy Brief as well as the aims and goals of the project
A new article regarding the work that is developed and implemented during RISC-KIT was published from CORDIS, the Community Research and Development Information Service of the European Commission, titled "Increasing coastal resilience to storms and flooding".
"Coastal storms, sea level rises and flooding present a very real physical and economic threat that must be addressed in the EU. With this in mind, the FP7-funded RISC-KIT project has made accurately forecasting and predicting coastal storms – and optimising measures to prevent disasters from occurring – its key objectives. Now, in order to spread the message as widely as possible, new shorter versions of a RISC-KIT Policy Brief have been made available in Bulgarian, French, Spanish, Swedish, Dutch and German, in addition to English" the article states and continues: "These briefs outline the importance of developing disaster risk reduction strategies as a means of increasing coastal resilience. They contain information at the national and local scale and provide tangible examples from coastal areas where project findings are currently implemented. These documents should be of real benefit to forecasting and civil protection agencies, coastal managers, local government, community members, NGOs, the general public and scientists".
The RISC-KIT project Consortium is committed in keeping up the good work!
