RISC-KIT FP7 final meeting

Wednesday April 5th  - Friday April 7th  Deltares hosted the final meeting of the EU Project RISC-KIT. There were contributions from different members of the RISC-KIT project, end users, international experts and Deltarians who presented Deltares work related to the RISC-KIT project.

 

One of the products is an Impact –oriented Early Warning System. This system does not focus on the hazards alone but also on the impacts, like direct damages. Its generic design allows this tool to be adapted and used with existing local systems and software. The Tool can also be used in the Planning Phase to assess the effectiveness of DRR solutions in reducing risk to the hazards of erosion and flooding. More info:https://www.risckit.eu/np4/384.html
