ADRION Thematic Sub-cluster on Risk Prevention and Disaster Resiliance

This Thematic Cluster focuses on risk prevention and disaster resilience. All involved projects will jointly work on common key tools (e.g. database, vulnerability analysis tools, impacts catalogues, etc.) with the aim to improve the risk prevention and increase disaster resilience in the Adriatic Ionian area. The Thematic Cluster will further develop project proposals based on the analysis of the bottlenecks addressing the entire disaster management cycle and contributing to the implementation of the EUSAIR strategy towards a more resilient Europe.

PROJECT COORDINATOR:

MUHA

The sub-cluster is composed of the following projects:

The projects from Thematic cluster Risk prevention and Disaster Resilience MUHA, ADRISEISMIC and TRANSCPEARLYWARNING discussed the approach for the new project ideas for the next programming period. To achieve the improvement of European strategy among the projects and to reduce the potential risk of climate change, representatives of projects stressed the importance to coordinate and corporate with users and developers of the innovative products. Project representatives noted that in order to tackle future challenges related to climate change; climate change adaptation and resilience plans must be devised and included in all strategies, spatial plans and building designs.

Shared Project Proposal

First meeting of the ADRION Thematic Cluster – Risk Prevention and Disaster Resilience

On Tuesday 20th July MUHA partner met online with its sub-cluster partners TRANSCPEARLYWARNING and ADRISEIEMIC for the first meeting of the Thematic Cluster Risk prevention and disaster resilience. The purpose of the meeting was to develop a better understanding of the individual project’s expected outcomes and identify an overall SWOT analysis for the cluster.

Minutes of the meeting

Second meeting of the ADRION Thematic Cluster – Risk Prevention and Disaster Resilience

The ADRION project TransCPEarlyWarning organized the second Thematic Cluster meeting on the 15th of December. The meeting was held by the participation of the project representatives of MUHA, ADRISEISMIC and TransCPEarlyWarning. The participants were informed about the Thematic Cluster approach of the ADRION Programme, as well as the current outcomes of Cluster 2.2. The meeting was an opportunity to brainstorm ideas for the next programming period.

ADRION projects MUHA, ADRISEISMIC and TRANSCPEARLYWARNING were presented during the ADRION Annual and Capitalization Event on the 7th of December, 2021. Jessica Amadio, the representative of the Sub-cluster, introduced the SWOT analysis of the three projects, ideas on how to address multi-hazard resilience and contributions of the projects during the event.

The results from the SWOT analysis pointed out some bottlenecks in risk prevention and disaster resilience, such as lack of shared databases and high heterogeneity among countries, and some important opportunities such as transboundary cooperation, harmonization of procedures, and communication.

Following the SWOT analysis, the project ideas in the framework of the next programming period, aimed at contributing to the implementation of the EU Green deal objectives and the EUSAIR strategy were presented. Ideas are fed by some common themes such as cooperation, communication, data collection and data sharing.

The Thematic Cluster keeps working on shaping the ideas and developing tools. These ideas and tools will be presented in an event that will be held in Rome in September 2022.
