Area-wide Assessment of Risk Evaluations (BE-AWARE)

The Bonn Agreement Area (Greater North Sea and its approaches) currently has no overview risk assessment.

The project aims to further develop and update hazard identification and risk modelling, draw lessons learned from past disasters and raise awareness and prevention capacities at a regional level involving multinational participation.

The results will include the development of an area-wide marine pollution prevention policy quantifying resources available, current and future maritime activity levels and environmental sensitivity as well as the production of a well understood and unanimously accepted blue-print for disaster prevention at the regional level, tested and validated.
