• LA8. Integrated Services for the Mitigation of Natural Risks

Coordinator: Luis Matias, FCUL
Co-coordination: Ricardo Garcia, IGOT
Institutions: FCUL, IGOT, IPMA, UBI, UC


Line of action responsible for the development and distribution of integrated products to support the mitigation of natural risks.

Aims to stimulate the integration of the various C4G working groups with services and products (S&P) relevant to the mitigation of natural risks, to compile the existing S&P and to propose new S&P, or their update and development, taking into account the objectives of this line of action.


Our geoscientific resources on natural risks consist of the following types:
