Final Report - PREVIEW (Prevention, information and early warning pre-operational services to support the management of risks)

Project ID: 516172
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE


This is a series of handbooks developed within the EU-funded Preview project for the following information services: the 'Windstorms', 'Forest fires', 'Landslides', 'Floods', 'Earthquakes and volcanoes', 'Man-made risks' and 'Rapid mapping and asset mapping' service. These new or enhanced information services for risk forecasting and management as well as damage assessment aim to provide support to European civil protection units, local and regional authorities.

These services have been used and validated by a pre-selected group of end-users at eight test sites in Europe: France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Turkey. Each handbook provides a comprehensive presentation of each service (concept and end-user requirements, expected benefits, scope of use). The exportability of all services across Europe is then studied, as well as the drivers at local, regional, national or European level that could lever their deployment.
