Enhanced risk and crisis assessment and preparedness to natural hazards rely on tools using different types of data, information and forecasts (e.g. meteorological data, physical data related to geohazards and climate projections etc.) which may enable to anticipate the occurrence of disasters. Based on the legacy of existing solutions, in particular in the area of extreme weather events, further developments are required to compare impact forecasting and early warning approaches at international level.

R&I actions should improve measures and technologies that are needed to better plan for extreme climate events and geological disasters, reduce risks, as well as manage the immediate consequences of natural disasters, in particular regarding emergency responses leading to sound and timely operational forecasts of severe (short-term focus) extreme weather events or geological hazards to aid planning authorities, civil protection agencies and first responders in their decision-making.

-Enhanced response capacity to extreme weather and geological events through the comparison of measures and technologies
-Better management of the rapid deployment of first responders through adjustments to warning and response systems incorporating cross-disciplinary cooperation
-Establishment of a European-scale multi-hazard platform to facilitate the identification of expected natural hazards with great specificity in time and space
