Potential Prevention, Mitigation and Preparedness Measures for Each Case Study Site

Potential Prevention, Mitigation and Preparedness Measures for Each Case Study Site

This report summarizes the potential prevention, mitigation, and preparedness measures for each of the eleven case studies included in RISC-KIT (Resilience – Increasing Strategies for Coasts – ToolKit). It includes a discussion with case study owners about potential measures as well as the identification and presentation of the measures according to what Disaster Risk Management (DRM) phase and dimension of disaster they address. Furthermore the report takes the nature of the measure into consideration.

Moreover this report describes measures that are planned, in construction/ongoing, or implemented in the case study areas. This should improve the understanding of the issues that are already covered and show the remaining gaps. Potential contributions of RISC-KIT to plans and processes are analyzed in each case study.
