The Multi-hazard and Resilient-informed system for Enhanced Local and Regional Disaster risk management (MEDiate) project will contribute to enhanced assessment of disaster risks and to improved disaster risk management and governance.
MEDiate is a Horizon Europe project starting October 2022 and is funded under the Disaster-Resilient Society 2021 call.
In the next three years, the MEDiate Consortium, coordinated by NORSAR and consisting of 18 partners from 7 European Countries, involving a multi-disciplinary team of meteorological, environmental, social and geophysical scientists, civil and risk engineers, information technologists, business economists and managers, and end-users, will work together to ensure that MEDiate delivers solutions that are user-led and supported by appropriate technology.
MEDiate will develop a decision-support system (DSS) for disaster risk management by considering multiple interacting natural hazards and cascading impacts using a novel resilient-informed, service-oriented and people-centred approach that accounts for forecasted modifications in the hazard, vulnerability and exposure.
