Presentation of the ENSURE research project "Enhancing resilience of communities and territories facing natural and na-tech hazards".
The basic assumption of the ENSURE project, developed under the 7th Research Program of the European Commission, is that our ability to better understand and evaluate different types of vulnerabilities constitutes a crucial tool to strengthen communities in the face of disasters due to extreme events and climate change. Improving the understanding of the factors that make a community more vulnerable is crucial. This will involve addressing the various physical, psychological, cultural, systemic, social and economic components that shape the relationship between societies and the “natural” environment, and will permit more tailored and articulated mitigation measures.
