Urban Disaster Resilience through Risk Assessment and Sustainable Planning (UD-RASP))

Area of activity/subject: urban resilience to disasters

Summary of the project: The goal of the project is to enhance urban multi-hazard disaster prevention and resilience in Tunisia, using the city of Monastir as a pilot case. The project will develop a standardized procedure to provide reliable data and information on urban growth and disaster risk trends in this pilot area. This will be achieved by integrating geospatial data derived from high resolution satellite imagery, available socioeconomic data, and information obtained from expert interviews into a multi-hazard risk assessment. The project will provide a methodology for resilient cities through the integration of risk information into urban disaster risk reduction (DRR) strategies in accordance with the Global Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2015-2030), applicable to urban environments in Tunisia and further North African countries.
