RISC-KIT's deliverable 1.1 Review report of key challenges and lessons learned from historical extreme hydro-meteorological events is now available!

RISC-KIT's Review report of key challenges and lessons learned from historical extreme hydro-meteorological events is now ready and provides and available to download from our website.

RISC-KIT just released D 1.1, the Review report of key challenges and lessons learned from historical extreme hydro-meteorological events.

 

The objective of this report is to establish a starting position for potential advances in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) strategies through review, data collection and historical analysis. In particular, the report reviewed (supra-)national DRR management plans for all Case Studies and analysed large-scale historical events to derive lessons-learned at RISC-KIT European Case Study Sites in the United Kingdom, Portugal, Italy, and France. Large-scale events like tropical cyclones and hurricanes were also analysed for Bangladesh and the USA. An interdisciplinary approach drawing on the physical, economic, social and historical sciences was used to ensure that all aspects relevant to the project were considered.

 

This Deliverable that was realised by CFR, with the contribution of all the Case Study site partners, identifies the similarities and disparities between countries, and underlines the limitations and gaps concerning marine-driven events and rain-driven flash floods. The results of the report will be used for the development of potential prevention, mitigation and preparedness measures during the next phases of RISC-KIT, thus supporting the development of more efficient and effective future coastal policies .
