Resilience-increasing strategies for coasts.
On April 6 and 7, BRIGAID participated in the RISC–KIT Conference at Deltares in the Netherlands.
RISC–KIT is an EU FP7 Collaborative project in which methods, tools, and management approaches weredeveloped to reduce risk and increase resilience to low–frequency, high–impact hydro–meteorological eventsin the coastal zone. BRIGAID made a presentation on coastal flood hazards and efforts by BRIGAID inbringing flood–related innovations to market.
Two BRIGAID partners attended, Professor Bas Jonkman andDr. Antonia Sebastian from TU Delft. The conference highlighted the advances made in terms offorecasting, prediction, and early warning capabilities, improvements in the long–term coastal floodprevention, mitigation, and preparedness in Europe.
