This paper examines how to maximise the benefits arising from, and overcome the barriers to, the implementation of a multihazard and multi-risk assessment approach within current risk management regimes. Working at two test sites, one in Naples and one in Guadeloupe, the research team engaged in a continuous dialogue with local authorities and practitioners to better understand how to effectively implement the results of multi-risk assessment.
The paper offers the following recommendations for future directions (pp. 10-12):
- creation of multi-risk platforms;
- creation of local multi-risk commissions.
