Hazard and vulnerability assessment – the path to identifying risk

Période2018 - 2019
Partenaires
Centre coordinateur : Centre Euro-Méditerranéen sur la dynamique côtière insulaire
Centres partenaires : Centre Européen sur les Risques Géomorphologiques ,

Contexte du projet

This project proposal is based on an earlier initiative to develop a simplified but scientifically sound methodology for risk assessment of coastal hazards. It is linked to a need identified in a 2014 initiative for a stepped approach to the identification and mapping of coastal risk.

A 2016-17 project saw the development of geomorphological mapping skills and datasets in the participating centres and country coastlines.  

This current proposal (2018/19) considers the production of susceptibility and hazards mapping (in 2018) and subsequent (2019) identification of coastal vulnerability.

The global objective of the 2018/19 project is to provide national authorities / ministries responsible for planning and civil protection with a well-defined, methodology for susceptibility and hazard mapping and identification of vulnerability to coastal hazards. 

The long-term goal is to conclude this project in 2020-21 with Risk assessment and mapping.

Résultats attendus

Résultats attendus année 1

Centre Euro-Méditerranéen sur la dynamique côtière insulaire - Malte :

Susceptibility and hazards mapping will be carried out in selected coastal areas of Malta and Normandy where previous geomorphological mapping took place during the 2016/17 programme (the NW coast of Malta and SE coast of Gozo and west coast of Normandy).

Résultats attendus année 2

Identification of coastal vulnerability and consequences. The project will evaluate a number of potential methodologies that can be used for the estimation of social, economic and physical coastal vulnerability to coastal erosion and / or sea level rise, and choose one or a set of such methodologies for field application (mapping) during 2019.
