This study proposes to adopt the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) approach to assist integrated flood management and transboundary cooperation in river basins, extending over more municipalities, regions, or states.
In order to address residual risks and to reduce the damages from overload events, a combination of structural protection measures with additional, nonstructural measures is required. Based on data collected through a literature review, a questionnaire
This paper presents a mobility indicator derived from anonymised aggregated mobile positioning data. Even though the indicator does not provide information about the behaviour of individuals, it captures valuable insights into the mobility patterns of the
This work introduces the concept of data-driven Mobility Functional Areas (MFAs) as geographic zones with a high degree of intra-mobility exchanges. Such information, calculated at European regional scale thanks to mobile data, can be useful to inform
Forest fire activity in the Alpine region will probably increase in the near future, due to the increasing intensity of drought periods and heat waves and the increasing fire hazard resulting from rural abandonment and more recreational activities. This

As per the Open Data for Resilience Index, much of the essential risk data in Balkan countries has restricted access or does not exist, with a lack of interoperability also hampering DRR. But government and journalist efforts are attempting to fill the gap, and the Balkans have several key recommendations to guide future open data efforts.

According to a new report by the European Court of Auditors, the EU Directive of 2007 led to progress in assessing the risks of floods, but major challenges remain in the much fuller integration of climate change, flood insurance and spatial planning into flood risk management. There are also critical weaknesses in allocating funding.
