Introduction to the RISC-KIT Toolkit

Five tools are being developed that will comprise the RISC-KIT Toolkit

High-impact storm events have demonstrated the vulnerability of coastal zones in Europe and beyond. These impacts are likely to increase due to predicted climate change and on-going coastal development. In order to reduce impacts, disaster risk reduction (DRR) measures need to be taken, which prevent or mitigate the effects of storm events.

The RISC-KIT project developed the following tools to identify and prioritize the coastal zones which are most at risk:

 

The RISC-KIT Tools:

  1. The Storm Impact Database of present and historic socioeconomic and physical data;
  2. The Coastal Risk Assessment Framework (CRAF) to identify - at the regional scale (100's km) - present and future hot spot areas of coastal risk:
  3. The Web-based Management Guide offering innovative, cost-effective, ecosystem-based DRR measures;
  4. Quantitative, high-resolution Hotspot Tool to evaluate the effectiveness of DRR measures in hot spots (with a scale of 10's km);
  5. Multi-Criteria Analysis Tool (MCA) to assess alternative DRR measures with stakeholders.

 

The developed tools have been applied to a number of case study sites.
