BORIS2 Project

Activities - Projects

The BORIS2 project “Cross BOrder RISk assessment for increased prevention and preparedness in Europe: way forward”, funded by the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG-ECHO), GA n. 101140181, builds on the results of BORIS project, ended in 2022. Considering the need expressed by local civil protections involved as stakeholders in BORIS, particularly to enhance the multi-risk analysis methodology proposed for an effective use towards emergency planning, the BORIS2 goal is to deliver a methodology and tool to support stakeholders to undertake strategic decisions to improve emergency planning. The multi-risk analysis methodology developed in BORIS, that was implemented at municipality scale, will be modified for application at sub-municipal level (e.g. at census tract level or for square grid units) considering relevant multi-risk scenarios. This will enable to highlight urban areas that are most impacted by single and multiple risks for a better planning of emergency phase. Moreover, critical infrastructures and their connections will be included for the evaluation. Expanding on the concept of Limit Condition for the Emergency, a multi-risk approach that could be applied also in cross-border regions will be proposed delivering a comprehensive methodology for institutions operating in different national context. A “scenario-driven” approach will be tested for the assessment of the impacts of seismic, flood or multi-risk events on assets and infrastructures relevant for emergency management. Results of BORIS2 will be integrated in the existing BORIS platform, ensuring its interoperability.
