About BORIS 2021-2022

The BORIS project focuses on the assessment of SEISMIC RISK and FLOOD RISK, having cross-border impact-potential in several countries participating to the Union Civil Protection Mechanism.
BORIS aims at increasing the protection from cross-border disasters by developing a SHARED METHODOLOGY for SINGLE and MULTI-RISK ASSESSMENT as well as a WEB-BASED PLATFORM for single and multi-risk assessment and representation with a harmonized approach, for an effectively agreed and shared transboundary risk assessment.
The methodology and platform will be practically applied in two PILOT CASE STUDIES at CROSS-BORDER SITES involving seismic and flood risk as well as multi-hazard risk assessment. This will allow to evaluate the data needed in the selected cross-border sites, test the procedures and effectively perform cross-border seismic and flood risk assessment, as well as multi-risk comparison and ranking.

Concept & methodology

BORIS has the objective to support cross-border disaster risk management through the development of a shared methodology and tool (platform) for single and multi-risk assessment and their application in cross-border sites to perform effective risk evaluation with a shared approach in confining countries. Existing methods, models and tools for evaluation of hazard effects in different countries will be adapted and integrated in BORIS methodology with a harmonized and shared approach. This will allow to evaluating risk and scenarios with a common framework and understanding. Moreover, the web-platform for multi-risk assessment and representation will be an effective tool to enhance prevention to transnational disasters and the preparedness for an improved crisis management involving different states. The basic BORIS Concept & Methodology is illustrated below.
