    Workshop on Risk Management Capability Assessment


    Ispra Joint Research Centre
    Organiser: Others

    The workshop aims to boost the link between risk assessment exercises and DRM planning through the intermediate step between both: the risk management capability assessment (RMCA). To do so, methodologies and experiences in carrying out this type of evaluation would be presented together with three specific case studies. Two cases would be hazard specific (floods and pandemics) and the third would be related to the Actions plans formulated in the initiative Covenant of Mayor for Climate & Energy8, as an example from another community. Having in mind the Risk Management Capability Assessment Guidelines, the case studies would analyse the technical, financial and administrative capacities that should be in place to reduce the probability and consequences of flood and pandemic events at all four stages of DRM: prevention/mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery.
