This event is part of the EU project IncREO’s work programme and is organised by the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe, Venice (Italy), in cooperation with Geoville Group and Geomer along with the participation and support of the Civil Protection Department of the Veneto Region, the General Directorate of Civil Emergencies of Albania, the Italian National Research Council - Research Institute for Geo-Hydrological Protection (CNR–IRPI), and Airbus DS as project’s lead partner.

IncREO has been launched in early 2013 in support of emergency management and risk-preparedness aiming to provide actors responsible for disaster management, civil protection and spatial planning with satellite data-based solutions and to contribute, particularly, to an improved preparedness and mitigation planning for territories highly vulnerable to natural disasters such as the Alpago area concerning landslide, earthquake and flood.
The workshop will involve project partners and end-users in order to provide the final feedbacks on IncREO products developed for the Alpago area such as accessibility maps, assets maps, vulnerability maps, etc.

Increasing Resilience through Earth Observation (IncREO) is funded by the European Commission under the programme Copernicus, which aims to enhance the EU’s capacity in Global Monitoring for Environment and Security. The UNESCO Venice Office is a partner of the project which is coordinated by Astrium Services.
