Online Workshop: Territorial impacts of natural hazards, 16 June 2021
ESPON-TITAN project has been practically completed and a set of policy recommendations on how to mainstream Disaster Risk Management (DRM) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) strategies into spatial planning have been generated. They are based on research findings regarding the territorial distribution of some selected natural hazards like (river) floods, windstorms, drought and earthquakes, their economic impacts and territorial vulnerability assessment.
A comprehensive analysis of existing DRM/CCA measures in European countries, contrasted with 8 regional case studies have contributed to shaping the recommendations as well.
The workshop will present the main research findings and debate on challenges for applying the recommendations.
