The ‘Transboundary Storm Risk and Impact Assessment in Alpine regions’ (TRANS-ALP) project aims to critically review and analyse current multi-hazard risk assessment (and its impact) using forecasting approaches for mountainous regions in cross-border areas between Italy and Austria.
The project activities contribute to improving cross-border collaboration, which on the one hand increases awareness of high-intensity multi-hazard extreme weather events, and on the other provides practical tools and methodologies for cross-border impact forecasting and risk assessment.
The project aims to provide an integrated conceptual methodology for the disaster management cycle in order to better link risk assessment to impact forecasting, and further advance decision-making processes in the EU in the context of disaster risk prevention.
TRANS-ALP is implemented by a consortium of environmental, meteo-hydrological, and earth observation institutes from Austria and Italy, and is supported by a group of interested stakeholders in areas related to civil protection, land management, research, and other key sectors from Italy, Austria, and Slovenia.
