Increasing Resilience through Earth Observation (IncREO)
Start date: Jan 1, 2013, End date: Dec 31, 2014 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The overall objective of IncREO is to provide actors responsible for disaster management, risk prevention, civil protection and also spatial planning with EO-based solutions contributing particularly to an improved preparedness and mitigation planning for areas highly vulnerable to natural disasters and already noticeable climate change trends. These solutions will be adjusted to the users’ and end-users’ needs and will also reflect on short-term climate change scenarios and related legislature – both on national, supranational and European level. As a multi-risk oriented concept per se any type of natural disaster is addressed. However, selected use cases (dam failure, storm surge and wave height, flood, earthquake and landslide) and the transfer of solutions to a specifically multi-risk prone test site will also be covered. From a technical point of view the IncREO solutions will be based on state-of-the-art methodologies, implemented by means of up-to-date mapping and modelling / procedures and finally appropriately disseminated to the relevant stakeholder groups.
