Approach • Budget: 20 000 € • Partners: GTK and Centre for Urban and Regional Studies/Helsinki University of Technology • Hazards selected according to ESPO 1. 3. 1 profiles of spatial relevance • Creation of database structured according to hazards, type of projects and INTERREG III strand • Overlay of project activities and hazard prone areas • Recommendations for future hazard activities. Note: It was only recommended where to increase hazard related activities, not where to decrease those!

Recommendations • Broaden scope of INTERREG activities, i. e. take hazards and risks up

Recommendations • Broaden scope of INTERREG activities, i. e. take hazards and risks up in measures and priorities • Promote activities on hazards and risks in regions where these are most imminent • Analyse necessity of hazard and risk related activites locally and regionally (INTERREG offices) • Take up some results of ESPON database (e. g. support to define project targets) • Make use of TIA approach (e. g. to measure impact of projects on regional development) • Make use and further develop policy recommendations and reporting scale (for overall output assessment)
