The REsponsive Data ecosystem for Resilient and Operational SEcurity Strategies ー or RED ROSES ー project co-funded by the European Commission as part of the Union Civil Protection Mechanism addresses natural risk prevention and preparedness in the French-Italian cross-border area.
Natural disasters have been increasing in intensity and recurrence as a result of climate change. They have a major impact in terms of human lives, natural heritage and economic activity. The occurrence of such events in cross-border regions raises questions about the ability of civil protection authorities and stakeholders to prevent, prepare, monitor and respond to such disasters on either side of the border, and highlights the difficulty of sharing information in a cross-border context.
Developing tools and services for sharing relevant data
The RED ROSES project therefore aims to develop, test and deploy a data and information sharing tool for cross-border authorities and civil protection actors, to tackle the risks of floods, landslides and forest fires.
Interoperable and modular, the Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) will not only enable the persistent natural risks in this cross-border area to be catalogued and visualised via a geoportal, but will also help the relevant authorities in their decision-making in the face of disaster risks via a decision-support system.
Strengthening prevention and preparedness for cross-border natural disasters
Ultimately, the project seeks to foster a new decision-making process based on cooperation, increase public awareness and perception of risks, improve community resilience and reduce the impact of unforeseen events in the area of disaster risk.
Civil protection authorities and actors identified as end-users, including volunteer-based organisations such as the Red Cross, will be involved throughout the RED ROSES project.
