Abstract

This report has brought together the contributions of thirteen representatives from EU, Accession and Candidate countries from the respective Civil Protection Authorities, along with representatives from the research community in Japan and the United States, who all participated in the NEDIS Workshop.

It can be noticed that the contributions to the proceedings are divided into three parts:

Section A) Keynote papers, which portrays four contributions.

Section B) Countru papers, which provides seven papers addressing natech-related issues in the following countries: Italy, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Portugal, Romania and Sweden.

Section C) Country presentations, which show the PowerPoint presentations of natech-related activities in six countries in Europe: Austria, Cyprus, Finland, Hungary, Lithuania, and the Netherlands.

The Workshop included plenary sessions and parallel working sessions during both days. There was an opening session by the JRC and the UN?ISDR, followed by presentations by invited keynote speakers, and a series of individual country presentations. These presentations were followed by a day and a half of parallel working sessions, where the country representatives were divided into two groups, and worked together as a group to address a series of questions concerning natech disaster impacts, vulnerability, and risk reduction. The individual workgroups then convened in a plenary session at the end of each day to present their workgroup results and allow for discussion.
