Greco-Risks

Project Description:Greco-Risks (www.GrecoRisks.com) delivers a Multi-Risk web-Platform integrating Risk Modules for nine specific hazards:

- Earthquake
- Forest fires
- Landslide
- Ground movement
- Volcano
- Tsunami
- Extreme weather
- Flash-floods
- Industrial accidents.

Modules use as input past observations, data and references for Greece combined with GIS data to deliver Hazard and Risk Maps. Project data incorporate INSPIRE principles and project maps visualize the spatial variation of hazard magnitude, vulnerability elements and expected or observed impacts.

Greco-Risks acts as an IT "umbrella" for the abovementioned Risk Modules offering a useful tool for Risk Analysis via a user-friendly interface. The end-user is able to:

-highlight areas or elements prone to particular risks
- obtain information about the risks within the greek territory
- simulate scenarios for a single or more hazards
- create maps with multiple thematic layers
- support the analysis of complex problems such as: "given a hazard scenario what could be the impact and at what cost vs recovery?".

The project contributes towards integrated Risk Assessment and Mapping that can increase preparedness at national level and beyond. It can enhance resilience to crises due to natural or man-made disasters as part of an integrated strategy towards risk mitigation and management.
