Dear Stakeholder,

The ESPREssO project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 700342  
http://www.espressoproject.eu/

ESPREssO aims at contributing to a new strategic vision to approach natural risk reduction and climate change adaptation, thereby opening new frontiers for research and policy making.

To achieve this goal, the project structure is built upon the central role of three main challenges to be addressed in order to propose ways to mitigate differences, to identify gaps, and to overcome the boundaries among different topics:

  1. To propose ways to create more coherent National and European approaches on Disaster Risk Reduction, Climate Change Adaptation and resilience strengthening;
  2. To enhance risk management capabilities by bridging the gap between science and legal/policy issues at local and national levels in six European countries;
  3. To address the issue of efficient management of trans-boundary crises.
The final products of ESPREssO will be Guidelines on risk management capability and a Vision Paper on future research strategies in order to better define the research priorities following the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.

The project is currently in an early stage and we would like to invite you to be involved and to hear your views in addressing the key issues faced in both policy and practice. We would like to highlight examples of good practice, explore new initiatives, propose new research avenues and ultimately, to find ways of overcoming some of the challenges, based on what you tell us is needed.
