Directed Horizon, European project for joint actions on combating climate change, for risk management and emergencies   also in Emilia-Romagna Region

Participation of the Regional Agency for Territorial Security and Civil Protection and ARPAE. Fire and flood risk test areas: Comacchio, Mesola (FE) and the municipalities of the Rimini coast

jpg151.77 KB)Directed-Project-Logo-D.jpgNetworking at European level on climate adaptation issues, pooling knowledge and procedures, to intervene more effectively in the management of emergencies caused by floods, droughts, heat waves, forest fires.

These are the cornerstones of the new Project DIRECTED Horizon Europe, ‘Disaster Resilience for Extreme Climate Events providing Interoperable Data, Models, Communication and Governance (DIRECTED)

has among the partners the Regional Agency for Territorial Security and Civil Protection and ARPAE, the Regional Agency for Environmental Prevention of the Emilia-Romagna Region.

Launched in late November in Braunschweig, Germany, the project was funded by the EU with EUR 5.2 million and also involves the Copenhagen Region, the Danube Region and the Rhine-Erft District; support universities and research institutes.

Over the four years of the project, experts, local authorities and operational structures will develop common risk assessment tools, disaster alert systems and effective means of communication for faster emergency management

Comacchio, Mesola (FE) and the municipalities of the Rimini coast (Bellaria-Igea Marina, Rimini, Riccione, Misano Adriatico and Cattolica) have been identified as test areas to study procedures for assessing and managing flood and forest fires risks, increase knowledge and ability to build new tools: DRR (Disaster Risk Management) and CCA (Climate Change Adaptation).

Projects and collaborations with authorities, research institutions and other stakeholders are planned; communication activities and training aimed at raising awareness in the community.
