The Authorities


An attempt is being made today to establish a comprehensive and uniform approach to natural hazard management at federal, cantonal and communal levels under the heading of integrative risk management.


With regard to hazard prevention (prevention) the communes must create hazard maps for all settlement areas. The aim of this project is to establish a forward-looking approach to natural hazard management and to create the possibility for timely action and not just reaction to hazard events. Nonetheless, each commune must also consider the management of its hazard areas and natural events. The following questions must be raised and answered: Which protection measures have been taken, which guarantees can we offer, which insurance policies must be completed?

Risk dialogue


Within the risk dialogue, representatives of the cantonal, communal and national authorities exchange experiences and information among each other and with the population. PLANAT promotes opportunities for networking for the different actors and provides a platform with information about managing risks from natural hazards.
