Satellite imagery supports several aspects of risk assessment and risk scenarios identification and historical reconstruction. Building on asset and hazard mapping provided by WP4, 5 and 6 and historic cases reconstruction in WP7 this WP aims at:

  • Characterizing vulnerability into a multi-hazard context, taking into account direct and indirect damage
  • Developing a methodology that takes further the concept of vulnerability by introducing social vulnerability indicators on the one side and the “residual functionality” of the different assets on the other
  • Provide a methodological framework for Risk scenarios assessment to be integrated in WP9 for use in Risk management plans in the prevention/preparedness phase as well as to support the reconstruction phase in a Disaster Risk Reduction framework.
