A toolkit to reduce coastal vulnerability

Publicatie type | artikel (tijdschrift)
Coastal authorities need to take steps to prevent or mitigate damage in the future. They need information about where the coastal areas exposed
to most risk are situated, what measures are possible, how effective these solutions are, and how to communicate with stakeholders. The RISC-KIT (Resilience-increasing Strategies for Coasts) Toolkit was developed by a consortium of eighteen partners led by Deltares. It includes five tools: The storm impact database ; The Coastal Risk Assessment Framework (CRAF) tool ; The web-based management guide ; The hotspot tool for Disaster
Risk Reduction (DRR) assessment ; The multi-criteria analysis (MCA) guide. All the tools have been tested at ten case-study sites in Europe, at least one on every regional sea in Europe. The tools were found to be applicable to all these different coastal locations.
