The European Union and Natural Hazards

The EU has supported multi-national and interdisciplinary research in the field of natural hazards since the late 1980s addressing mainly climate- and geological-related hazards such as floods, landslides, avalanches, forest fires, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. EU research has enabled methods and technologies to be developed for improved hazard assessment, forecasting and monitoring, management and mitigation.
