Call for proposals 2016 for prevention and preparedness projects in the field of civil protection and marine pollution
Deadline: 14 March 2016
Proposals presented by the Province of Lucca in collaboration with other organizations and/or local entities: n. 1
Project title: Sinkhole Early Characterization for Urban Resilience Enhancement
Proposer: Provincia di Lucca (Leader); Comune di Camaiore (partner).
Offices involved: Politiche Comunitarie, Protezione Civile
Theme: Improving the knowledge of sinkhole both at institutional and social level in order to reduce its effects. This will be obtained through a double technical and social approach: an innovative integrated monitoring network will be set-up and tested in three different sites corresponding to the partners’ territory in order to individuate precursors to sinkholes and define a combined permanent monitoring system for sinkhole risk prevention; on the other hand, the population and the civil protection authorities will be educated and trained in order to increase the resilience and eventually to improve risk prevention activities.
