What is TRANS-ALP Project?
The TRANS-ALP project analyses the occurrence of severe weather events that can be classified as extreme and their specific features in the cross-border area between Austria and Italy (Trentino-Alto Adige/South Tyrol and Veneto), with the overall goal of developing an integrated methodology for multi-hazard risk assessment and impact forecasting for mountainous regions at cross-border scale, in order to further advance the decision-making processes and support transnational cooperation along the disaster management cycle in the EU.
The project is implemented by a consortia of environmental, meteo-hydrological and earth observations institutes from Austria and Italy, and it is supported by a group of interested stakeholders from areas of civil protection, land management, research and other key sectors, from Italy, Austria and Slovenia.
TRANS-ALP Project has been funded by the European Commission, under the Union Civil Protection Mechanism Prevention and Preparedness Projects in Civil Protection and Marine Pollution.
