Innovative tools for improving FLood risk reductiOn stRategIeS (FLORIS)

Area of activity / Keywords:

Resilience, Floods, Emergency Management

Summary of the action:

FLORIS (Innovative tools for improving FLood risk reductiOn stRategIeS) project aims at studying innovative approaches for the development of integrated flood risk scenarios considering the specific critical issues of areas at risk and the consequences of high frequency/low damage events on them.

In particular, the main idea is to develop a supporting decision tool for the comparative analysis of disaster reduction strategies in flood risk management, able to support various actors (Civil Protection, municipalities, administrations, professionals, etc.) in planning and design measures to improve all aspects of risk management under different and variable risk scenarios including climate and global change.

The action foresees three main specific objectives which can be subdivided in progressive steps, in particular:

  1. Developing innovative modelling for cascading effects of flood hazard to improve flood risk management actions with a specific interest on studying the functional vulnerability of critical infrastructures to reduce disruptive impacts during and after flood events;
  2. Applying and refining the designed approach for protocol development planning in each case study;
  3. Supporting Civil Protection in disaster prevention by providing a spendable procedure for human resources management during emergencies, in rescuing actions.
