This is the final report for the EARTHWAKE project which sets out the conclusions and recommendations from the EARTHWAKE forum held in Strasbourg on 8 - 9 November 2007.

The report proposes a series of 16 recommendations for action. These cover a wide spectrum of issues but may be encapsulated in the following general conclusions that represent a synthesis of the discussions that took place over the two weeks:
