New to RISC-KIT?
We are an EU-funded project developing risk management tools, with the help of End Users, to help deal with hazards and storm impacts in vulnerable coastal areas.

Final RISC-KIT Public Deliverables released.

Deliverable 6.4 and 6.6 are now available for public consultation.

Deliverable 6.4 describes the key tools and products used in RISC-KIT to ensure efficient external communication, dissemination of the project activities and transfer of results to end-users and stakeholders.

Communication and dissemination was aimed at raising general awareness of the project and informing relevant end-users and stakeholders about its outputs, asking them to get involved when necessary. These initiatives aimed to encourage target groups to adopt actions and uptake RISC-KIT’s results.

This report provides information on the published materials used to support and promote RISC-KIT, including the project brochure, a toolkit description, press releases, policy briefs, and a special issue publication in a peer-reviewed journal. It also documents the online resources available to independent learners, including movies and e-learning modules. Capacity building activities, namely the RISC-KIT Summer Schools are also described here.

The products were developed to appeal to their specific target audiences. The subjects
of dissemination, i.e. the messages to convey, were intimately related with the project
vision and aims.



Deliverable 6.6 describes Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) strategies in EU coastal areas, providing recommendations for EU, national, and regional policy makers. The RISC-KIT project is based in part on the Priorities for Action of the UNISDR Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) (2010–2015).

The relevance of the RISC-KIT approach and methodology as well as the project’s findings are confirmed by the new Sendai Framework (2015–2020), which contains the goal to prevent new and reduce existing disaster risks, through an all-of-society and all-hazards risk approach across economic, social and environmental policy areas by reducing vulnerability and increasing resilience. Specifically, the RISC-KIT project’s research approach is aligned with the Sendai Framework Priorities for Action 1, 2, and 4, and the following ‘Guiding Principles’

On the basis of our findings from the development and application of the RISC-KIT tools, we highlight the lessons-learned and provide a number of recommendations addressed to different actors. We reflect on how these findings bear relevance in particular to the Sendai Framework and the Floods Directive.
