Resilience-Increasing Strategies for Coasts – toolKIT (RISC-KIT)

November 2013 to April 2017
Climate change is leading to increased vulnerability of coastal areas as coastal storms, sea level rise and flooding cause significant impacts across Europe. Resilience-Increasing Strategies for Coasts – toolKIT (RISC-KIT) is a four-year European research project aimed at delivering ready-to-use methods, tools and management approaches to reduce risk from coastal storms and increase the resilience of Europe’s coastal zones. Designed around 11 case study sites, 10 European and one international, the project takes an interdisciplinary approach combining physical, socio-economic, socio-cultural and social-ecological data to design site specific Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) strategies and draw implications for national and European policy.Read more

Problematik der Binnenentwässerung sowie Konflikte bei der planerischen Steuerung von Flächen zur Klei- und Sandgewinnung
