Priority 3, Measure 3

Co-operation in the field of natural risks

This measure aims to promote transnational cooperation to reach a common and clear understanding of the natural risk phenomena. Therefore land use, vegetation, water regime and climate changes have to be taken into account.

Issues dealing with flooding will take into account the results and recommendations of respective projects in the previous Interreg IIC programme.


The general objectives of this measure are the following:

to avoid damages of lives and settlements through extreme natural hazards by new combined strategies and technical solutions, forecasting as well as by creating buffer areas of natural dynamics;
to strengthen and conserve mountain forests and their protection function;
to analyse risks from natural hazard and/or from man made hazard, propose technical instruments and preventive strategies for risks and to improve the information for the Alpine Space population about natural risks.
