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.

RISC-KIT Special Edition of the journal Coastal Engineering is here!

The full issue of the journal dedicated to RISC-KIT covers technical, social, and political aspects of risk management.

 

RISC-KIT researchers have come together to produce a special issue of the peer- reviewed scientific journal Coastal Engineering. This special edition of the journal is
dedicated exclusively to RISC-KIT outcomes and applications, addressing technological and cultural aspects of coastal risk management and disaster risk
reduction.


The special issue publication is aimed at both key target audiences of the RISC-KIT project: End Users and Stakeholders (including scientists). Contributions to the special
issue were selection to maximise their impact on different dissemination levels, i.e. to raise awareness, to improve understanding and to encourage action and uptake of the
tools. Certain manuscripts address technical aspects of the tools such as the development of specific computer models and applications, while others look at the
relevance of the tools on a very practical level, tailoring their components to specific RISC-KIT case study sites. Further, the special issue will also encompass social and
political dimensions by showing how stakeholder involvement can be used to provide qualitative inputs to disaster risk reduction strategies. The special issue reflects the
values of the project as a whole, always favouring multi-disciplinary approaches and seeking generic solutions to universal problems.

 

The twenty-one paper issue is now available online. This is a great achievement and monument to our project. We hope you like it as much as we do!
