Good Practice Information
The Handbook on Mitigating Spatial Relevant Risks in European Regions and Towns summarises the results of sixteen MiSRaR seminars and the exchange of experiences. It lays down the principles of risk mitigation, discusses how mitigation processes should be launched, how risk and capability assessment should be undertaken, and provides ideas for drafting mitigation plans, for financing of and lobbying for implementation actions, and for monitoring, enforcement and evaluation. Lastly the handbook provides recommendations to local governments and suggests the so-called RISCE approach (pronounced ‘risky’) as minimum requirements for future risk mitigation.
Evidence of success
The handbook identified and addresses the need for common, integrated and transferable solutions in risk mapping, analysis and mitigation at local and regional levels.
