LIFE FRANCA is a European project focusing on
flood risk anticipation and communication in the Alps
Realising that complete safety cannot be guaranteed, the project promotes a culture of environmental risks prevention in the Alps, with the objective of anticipating disasters and improving the safety of the region and the public.
The aim of LIFE FRANCA is to prepare the population for flood events in Trentino through a process that will involve the participation both of the public and of specialists and administrators.
The results of this pilot project can be applied to other regions, as well as other natural risks related to climate change.
LIFE FRANCA ended on December 2019.
What we did
BE INFORMED AND TAKE CARE OF YOUR REGION
It is time to shift from a culture of emergency response to a culture of risk prevention, in which we are all responsible – politicians, administrators, specialists and the public.
The first step is to know the risks in your area and learn how to live with them.
LIFE FRANCA has built an on line portal about flood risk which is a reference for anyone wishing to have up-to-date information on hydrogeological conditions in Trentino and to take part in the sustainable management of the environment.
The portal is constantly updated by the Service for Torrent Controlo of the Autonomous Province of Trento, but any citizen can bring to attention anomalies observed in the region.
The efficacy of risks prevention and mitigation relies on the participation of all interested parties, including you!
