Economics of Prevention Measures Addressing Coastal Hazards. (EcosHaz)
ECOSHAZ project aims to establish a sustainable knowledge framework addressing the costs and benefits of prevention and response to coastal hazards resulting from hydro-meteorological events (flooding, shoreline erosion, storm surges, sea level rise) and oil spill accidents.
Assessing current knowledge and specifying gaps, deficiencies and challenges in C/B analysis process.
Setting up of flexible structures ensuring the involvement of key actors.
Developing an effective knowledge exchange mechanism capable to explore and capitalize good practices.
Creating an Integrated Information System and its support tools to provide guidance as well as access to a network of special advisors.
Undertaking a pilot action.
Establishing of key stakeholders national clusters that will evolve into a EU transnational cooperation structure.
Enhancement of the partners' capacity to respond properly to the project requirements along with the development of a flexible structure ensuring the involvement of key actors from the private and public sector.
The initialisation of a participatory mechanism that will raise the awareness of policy makers and other interested stakeholders and will facilitate the further improvement of the developed Knowledge Framework for assessing the costs and benefits of prevention and response to coastal hazards resulting from hydro-meteorological events and oil spill accidents.
