6° LARAM Workshop

"SAFELAND (EU FP7 Project)"
Living with landslide risk in Europe / Vivere con il rischio da frana in Europa

7-9 September 2011
Salerno (Italy), Via Roma, 104 - Palazzo S. Agostino

Important date / Data importante:
5 September 2011 deadline for registration
Registration Fee / Quota di iscrizione: 150 € (2.5 days)
Simultaneous translation Italian-English / Traduzione simultanea Inglese-Italiano

The Workshop will disseminate the results of the SAFELAND (EU FP7 Project)

The scientific work packages in SafeLand are organised in five Areas:

  • Area 1 "Improving knowledge on landslide hazard, especially the triggering and run-out model" / "Valutazione quantitativa del rischio da frana" focuses on improving the knowledge on triggering mechanisms, processes and thresholds, including climate-related and anthropogenic triggers, and on run-out models in landslide hazard assessment;
  • Area 2 "Quantitative risk assessment (QRA)" / "L'avanzamento delle conoscenze sulla pericolosità da frana, modellazione delle fasi di innesco ed evoluzione" harmonises quantitative risk assessment methodologies for different spatial scales, looking into uncertainties, vulnerability, landslide susceptibility, landslide frequency, and identifying hotspots in Europe with higher landslide hazard and risk;
  • Area 3 "Quantifying global change scenarios (climatic and anthropogenic) and their impact on land-slide hazard and risk in the future" / "Quantificare i cambiamenti climatici ed antropogenici ed il loro impatto futuro sulla pericolosità e sul rischio da franafocuses" on future climate change scenarios and changes in demography and infrastructure, resulting in the evolution of hazard and risk in Europe at selected hotspots;
  • Area 4 "Development of monitoring technology, especially early warning systems and remote sensing techniques, and applications" / "Sviluppo ed applicazioni di tecnologie di monitoraggio, con particolare riguardo ai sistemi di allerta ed alle tecniche di telerilevamento" addresses the technical and practical issues related to monitoring and early warning for landslides, and identifies the best technologies available both in the context of hazard assessment and in the context of design of early warning systems;
  • Area 5 "Risk management, including toolbox or appropriate hazard and risk mitigation measures and stakeholder process for risk management" / "Gestione del rischio, incluso strumenti ed opzioni di mitigazione di pericolosità e rischio e processo di coinvolgimento delle parti interessate" provides a toolbox of risk mitigation strategies and guidelines for choosing the most appropriate risk management strategy.
