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.
European Commission published an attributing article and a press release on project MICORE, RISC-KIT's "ancestor" in the scientific effort to increase coastal resilience against flooding.
EC: Science for Environment Policy - Public participation in flood risk management: The case of Germany
Recent research in Germany revealed that 3 different strategies are being pursued across the country’s 16 federal states regarding the stakeholders involvement in the implementation of EU Flood directive.
RISC-KIT was represented to the 6th International Conference on Flood Management by Middlesex University, through a paper about the development of vulnerability indicators for European coastal zones.
