Principles of multi-risk assessment: Interaction amongst natural and man-induced risks, EUR 23615

Project ID: 511264
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

Multi-risk evaluation is a relatively new field, until now developed only partially by experts with different backgrounds. The EC FP6 NARAS project initiated some consideration and reflexion on this topic. As mentioned by Durham, a joint analysis and quantification of all the anthropogenic and natural risks which can affect a territory (multi-risk approach) is a basic factor for development of a sustainable environment and land use planning as well as for competent emergency management before and during catastrophic events. This is the aim of this publication that will present ideas and concepts: -report the principles and rationales that stand behind a procedure for multi-risk assessment; -provide a description of the most advanced procedures generally adopted to estimate individually natural and anthropogenic risks representing major threats for Southern Europe; -tackle directly the problem of multi-risk assessment applying innovative procedures and protocols to the case study of a town close to Naples (Casalnuovo).
