Assessment of landslide risk and mitigation in mountain areas

Objective

This project contributes to raise the prevention and mitigation of morpho-hydrogeological hazards and risks in Europe. A review of legislation and rules in European countries, of GIS analytical procedures for hazard studies, GIS techniques and multi-media tools, leads to propose and apply methodologies common to all the participants, for assessing hazard, vulnerability and risk in the study areas. Essential features of this project are, on the one hand, the integration of socio-economic and natural process factors with the aim of providing comprehensive information on natural hazards as well as their consequences for society, and, on the other hand, the appeal to GIS and information technology for the creation of database infrastructures, spatial data analysis, cartographic representation of hazard and risk, guidelines for mitigation actions, and communication with the decision makers and the general public.
