Dongeren, Ap van; Paolo Ciavola; Grit Martinez et.al. 2016: RISC-KIT: Resilience-increasing Strategies for Coasts. E3S Web of Conferences 7, 17001 (2016), FLOODrisk 2016 - 3rd European Conference on Flood Risk Management.
High-impact storm events have demonstrated the vulnerability of coastal zones in Europe and beyond. These impacts are likely to increase due to predicted climate change and ongoing coastal development. In order to reduce impacts, disaster risk reduction (DRR) measures need to be taken, which prevent or mitigate the effects of storm events.This paper gives an overview of the products and results obtained in the FP7-funded project RISC-KIT, which aims to develop and apply a set of tools with which highly-vulnerable coastal areas (so-called "hotspots") can be identified. The paper is available for download.
