The CRISIS project aims to improve disaster and emergency management by building a harmonised and efficient system to assess the risks of basic services and transport infrastructure in Greece, Albania and North Macedonia.
Initially, a report on stakeholder requirements based on elaborated questionnaires, together with a review of existing standards, procedures and guidelines, was delivered. This was used as a working basis for the project.
The CRISIS project’s final goal is to develop a common web-based geographic information system (GIS) platform for risk and disaster management in the region, with capacity to be extended to national or wider regional level.
Activities undertaken by the project include cross-border multi-hazard/risk assessment; needs assessment; and development of a cross-border web-based platform for risk assessment and management. Comprehensive assessments of all natural- and human-induced hazards that occur and are relevant to the cross-border region, including harmonised seismic and landslide hazards, are produced using state-of-the-art probabilistic methodologies and procedures.
The main benefit of the CRISIS project is the sharing of knowledge and strengthening of cooperation among civil protection and disaster management national authorities, as well as all academic partner institutions in the region.
