Quantitative risk assessment (QRA).
The scientific and technical objectives of Area 2 are to harmonise and develop improved procedures for quantifying landslide hazard (frequency) and risk at the local scale (individual slopes), the regional scale and finally the European scale. The methods developed will be implemented to identify the landslide hazard and risk "hotspots” in Europe (where hazard and/or risk are highest).
The analyses will also quantify the importance and effects of uncertainties on the results obtained. The outcome of QRA will serve as reference risk maps, using integrated GIS-based models. The analysis uncertainties, vulnerability, landslide susceptibility and frequency, will be ascertained. Area 2 has dual dimensions not only treating technological development on landslide hazard (frequency) and harmonising quantification procedures, but also including the sociological aspects such as societal vulnerability, and the elements at risk.
