RISC-KIT (2013-2017) is an EU FP7 Collaborative project. RISC-KIT will develop methods, tools and management approaches to reduce risk and increase resilience to low-frequency, high-impact hydro-meteorological events in the coastal zone. These products will enhance forecasting, prediction and early warning capabilities, improve the assessment of long-term coastal risk and optimise the mix of prevention, mitigation and preparedness measures.
Entitled, "Can an early-warning system help minimize the impacts of coastal storms? A case study of the 2012 Halloween storm, northern Italy," the article explores forecasting in the Emilia Romagna region, the location of the RISC-KIT Porto Garibaldi-Bellocchio case study site.
The first film on End-User Insights has been released. Find out what is the importance of coastal resilience to practitioners from across Europe.
On 01 February 2016, enrollment will open for RISC-KIT's first summer school.
