The overall goal of the project is to critically review and analyse the current multi-hazard risk assessment and their impact using forecasting approaches for mountainous regions at cross-border areas between Italy and Austria. Also the project aims to provide an integrated conceptual methodology along the disaster management cycle in order to better link risk assessment, impact forecasting and further advance the decision-making processes in the EU in the context of disaster risk prevention.
Severe Storms will be addressed as representative examples of complex hazards with cascaded /compounded components (wind gusts, floods, landslides) due to the current lack of harmonised risk assessments oriented to impact forecasting and prevention for such type of events in the Alpine regions.
The proposed activities will contribute to improve the cross-border collaboration, which on one hand will increase the awareness towards high-intensity multi-hazard extreme weather events, and on the other will also provide practical tools and methodologies for cross-border impact forecasting and risk assessment, with a potential for significant advises on joint risk reduction implementing measures.
The project will be implemented by a consortia of environmental, meteo-hydrological and earth observations institutes from Austria and Italy. The project will be supported by a group of Interested Stakeholders from areas of Civil Protection, Land Management, Research and other key sectors, from Italy, Austria and also Slovenia.
