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.
RISC-KIT at the 36th International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR) World Congress
Ap van Dongeren, RISC-KIT's coordinator, will organise a special session on Coastal Threats in Europe at the IAHR conference in The Hague, on June 30th 2015. The session will be a joint effort of the projects PEARL, ASTARTE, RISES-AM and RISCKIT.
RISC-KIT supported and was represented at the event “Stormy Geomorphology 2015: Geomorphic contributions in an age of extremes”, organised by the British Society for Geomorphology, in May 11th 2015, in London, UK
RISC-KIT participated to the 2nd ECCA Conference by co-organising and chairing two sessions regarding increased coastal resilience. In the framework of the conference Ap van Dongeren and Grit Martinez gave three presentations on related subjects.
