IMPROVED ASSESSMENT OF PLUVIAL, FLUVIAL AND COASTAL FLOOD HAZARDS AND RISKS IN EUROPEAN CITIES AS A MEAN TO BUILD SAFER AND RESILIENT COMMUNITIES

Contact Us

SAFERPLACES employs innovative climate, hydrological and hydraulic, topographic and economic modelling techniques to assess pluvial, fluvial and coastal flood hazard and risk in urban environments under current and future climates.

The service is designed to advice identification and assessment of flood risk mitigation measures and plans, inform climate adaptation and disaster risk reduction strategies, and help to foster multi-stakeholder agreements and partnership for resilience building. 

In particular SAFERPLACES sets to:

  1. further develop and enhance, test and demonstrate applicability of efficient and scalable flood hazard and risk mapping and assessment service in urban context, largely needed for devising climate adaptation and disaster risk reduction strategies and plans;
  2. facilitate multi-stakeholder dialog and identification of disaster risk reduction and climate adaptation measures and strategies,
  3. new business opportunities, and financial and economic incentives for behavioural and land-use changes, by employing nature or ecosystem-based solutions such as natural water retention and urban requalification

THE ISSUE

URBAN FLOODING: PLUVIAL, COASTAL AND FLUVIAL

Floods are responsible for 40% of these losses and together with storms denote the major natural hazard type in terms of economic damage. With high confidence, climate change is very likely to amplify extreme precipitation and flood hazards in many regions across Europe

THE INNOVATION

INNOVATIVE FLOOD RISK MAPPING TOOLS

SAFERPLACES employs innovative climate, hydrological and hydraulic, topographic and economic modelling techniques to assess pluvial, fluvial and coastal flood hazard and risk in urban environments under current and future climates.

THE PURPOSES

DEMOCRATIZING FLOOD RISK MODELS TO SUPPORT CLIMATE RESILIENCE IN URBAN CITIES 

The service is designed to advice identification and assessment of flood risk mitigation measures and plans, inform climate adaptation and disaster risk reduction strategies, and help to foster multi-stakeholder agreements and partnership for resilience building

THE APPROACH

MULTI-STAKEHOLDER CO-DESIGN & CO-DEVELOPMENT

facilitate multi-stakeholder dialog and identification of disaster risk reduction and climate adaptation measures and strategies, new business opportunities, and financial and economic incentives for behavioural and land-use changes, by employing nature- or ecosystem-based solutions such as natural water retention and urban requalification

THE VALUE

SAFERPLACES DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM

SAFERPLACES aims at supporting better flood hazard and risk evaluations, and identification of new opportunities associated with better prevention and protection and climate adaptation. The service fills two main knowledge gaps: (i) sound analysis of the current and future hazard and risk; (ii) a spatially-explicit economic assessment of flood impacts

What happens when people avoid each other for the most part but still go to a common central location like a store?

What if you can track and isolate cases, but 20% slip through the cracks? 50%?

And much more.

Safer_RAIN is one of the output of @SaferPlacesCKIC project promoted by @ClimateKICItaly and coordinated by @gecosistema

Too bad the publication of our #AGU19 poster on @ESSOAr_org did not materialize during the conference. Nevertheless, here it is, ready for further discussion and comments: Safer_RAIN a DEM-based tool for #pluvial #flooding #hazard assessment
https://t.co/Dh4joPeIDK

Basato su Wu e Lane (HESS, 2017), #Safer_RAIN è un algoritmo di mappatura speditiva della pericolosità di allagamento da nubifragio a partire da #LiDAR #DEM - Congratulazioni Serena Rossi (Neo-Dottore Magistrale)! @SaferPlacesCKIC @ClimateKICItaly https://t.co/l7zXorYhGJ

Here we are @AGU_H3S #AGU19 with @AttiCastellarin ready to present @SaferPlacesCKIC @ClimateKIC . Please join us at poster board 1832 this afternoon! @JaroslavMysiak @CmccClimate @comunerimini
