Towards Practical Guidance for Sustainable Sediment Management using the Sava River Basin as a Showcase. Estimation of Sediment Balance for the Sava River
  • Towards Practical Guidance for Sustainable Sediment Management using the Sava River Basin as a Showcase. Estimation of Sediment Balance for the Sava River
  • DELTARES, European Sediment Network (SedNet), International Sava River Basin Commission, UNESCO-International Hydrological Programme (IHP). December 2013
  • The main objective of this project is to develop and validate a practical guidance on how to achieve a Sustainable Sediment Management (SSM) Plan on the river-basin scale, using the Sava River Basin as a showcase. A core expert group has been established to analyze the sediment balance for the main Sava River course, also considering the input from the main tributaries, and thus to form a basis for sustainable transboundary sediment and water management. After collecting existing data the core expert group analyzed and evaluated the existing sediment data in ...[Read full description]

(The) WHO e-atlas of disaster risk for the European Region. Volume 1. Exposure to natural hazards. Version 2.0
  • (The) WHO e-atlas of disaster risk for the European Region. Volume 1. Exposure to natural hazards. Version 2.0
  • World Health Organization (WHO). December 2011
  • This e-atlas models the distribution of five natural hazards - seismic activity, floods, landslides, heat-waves and winds - and populations' exposure to them in 32 countries of the European Region. It provides the baseline data and maps needed to assess where the potential for damage may be the greatest and to underpin the call for more resources to improve emergency preparedness, reduce the health risks to vulnerable populations and aid the emergency response. This information also supports the identification, planning and prioritization of areas for prevent...[Read full description]
