Case Study 3 Multiple Hazards in South Tyrol, Italy & Grisons, Switzerland
The case study addresses the specific situation of alpine areas where communities and valleys are typically prone to a range of natural hazards (avalanches, debris flows, landslides, rockfalls) at the same time (multi-hazard setting).
Based on previous research in the area, emBRACE will test methods to assess and model resilience in this specific alpine context. In particular, this case study is expected to focus on assessing resilience at the municipality/community and provincial/cantonal level with respect to multiple hazards (e.g. precautionary measures, multi-hazard maps, contingency plans for cascading hazards, economic effects) and on assessing
