This seismic risk profile of Hungary, produced by the Global Earthquake Model (GEM) Foundation summarizes key metrics of seismic risk, allowing stakeholders in risk management to get an overview of the risk in the country.
The main objective of our study is to develop a set of tools to map and relatively easily assess the risk related to potential levee malfunction using a 40-km-long test site along the Lower Tisza River.
This article investigates polder implementation and management processes, perceived as a potential introduction of social innovation in Poland and Hungary, where social innovation in FRM is required but where the introduction of innovative solutions stall
