Integral Natural Hazard Risk Management - Recommendations
The task of the Platform on Natural Hazards (PLANALP), set up by the Permanent Committee of the Alpine Convention, is to monitor closely climate change and its effects on hazardous processes such as avalanches, floods and landslides. It is intended to provide the necessary decision-making information for the continued development of the adaptation strategies, as a basis for adjustments to hazard prevention in the Alpine region.
This document presents a synthesis of the analysis carried out by PLANALP. The members of PLANALP are of the opinion that the work hereinafter proposed is valid in any given context; however, climate change projections justify more than ever before an integral approach to natural risk hazard management.
