Call for contributions to the Knowledge Base of Resilience Strategies

PEARL seeks help!

What are we looking for?
As part of their tasks in WP5, PEARL’s partners are developing a Knowledge Base of resilience measures in flood management. To do this, they are collecting examples of applications of engineering, environmental and operational strategies and solutions for adaptation and mitigation. This information will then populate an online database that will allow end-users to find suitable measures for their observed problem (pluvial, fluvial, coastal floods and combinations thereof).

If you are a professional in the field of flood management and are aware of case studies of applications of resilience measures, then you are a perfect candidate to contribute to PEARL’s Knowledge Base!

What inputs are needed from your side?
1. Descriptions of real case studies, modelled/simulated case studies or prototypes/lab physical models of applied resilience measures and their impacts
2. Illustrations of the examples provided
3. References/sources (papers, books, websites, and so forth) concerning the cases described

What is the first step?
Contact George Karavokiros (gkaravo@itia.ntua.gr) and Archontia Lykou (alykou@central.ntua.gr) from the National Technical University of Athens by 31 August 2015. They will provide you clear instructions on how to proceed and answer any further question you might have.
