The increasing intensity and occurrence of extreme weather events in the Mediterranean region are likely connected to climate change and threaten vulnerable environmental and socio-economic systems.
The current risk assessment and prevention tools are still insufficient, therefore, there is an urgent need to provide local, national and European decision makers and stakeholders with improved and harmonised tools and methodologies for climate change adaptation for cross-border event.
There is a current lack of harmonised, transboundary risk assessments oriented to impact forecasting and prevention for such type of events in the Alpine regions.
The project will be implemented by a consortia of environmental, meteo-hydrological and earth observations institutes from Austria and Italy.
The project will be supported by a group of Interested Stakeholders from areas of Civil Protection, Land Management, Research and other key sectors, from Italy, Austria and Slovenia.
