Understanding Risk Forum Event Overview – Venice, May 16-20

Rasor Platform has made its official debut during the 2016 Understanding Risk Forum organised by the World Bank in Venice, where risk assessment experts from all the world had the chance to keep abreast on the most innovative and original tools to prevent natural disasters. One of the most successful has been the Rasor Platform, supported by the EU Commission under the Copernicus space program. After more than two years of work by the Rasor team, the platform is finally ready to be used by worldwide specialists. Five case studies were presented in Venice and we interviewed professionals from Haiti and Indonesia who used Rasor platform to learn their feelings about Rasor.
