Increasing resilience of residential buildings to floods and landslides
Vulnerable communities are severely affected by natural disasters. A model for the estimation of the impact of disasters and for planning mitigation policies is essential. The EU-funded MulHaRes project will develop a decision model to support multi-hazard resistance of residential buildings to floods and landslides provoked by heavy rainfalls. It will consider two distinct levels of building stock: individual buildings and building portfolios. The project will focus on EU residential buildings, examining residential practice in Europe. The resulting model will also be used for resistance estimation and planning of different types of buildings. The MulHaRes model will contribute to the efforts of a wide range of stakeholders seeking optimal mitigation strategies for residential buildings.
