IncREO - Increasing Resilience through Earth Observation, has been designed in support of emergency response management and risk-preparedness. It aims at providing actors responsible for disaster management, risk prevention, civil protection and also spatial planning with Earth Observation (EO)-based solutions, contributing particularly to an improved preparedness and mitigation planning for areas highly vulnerable to natural disasters.

The related workshop will involve project partners and end-users in order to assess and validate the updated products developed by Geoville: flood exposure analysis related to the Region of Shkodra, derived from a merging process out of EO imagery and in situ data. The workshop is an important step to present and finalize the digital flood exposure maps as well as data to be made available to the government of Albania and to be fully operationalized into the DEWETRA system. The workshop will foresee the participation of those departments and agencies which gave a relevant contribution during the data gathering phase of the project.

The setting up of such a multi-stakeholders consultation is propaedeutic for fine tuning the newly developed digital maps with the requirements of main users involved in forecasting, preparedness and managing of disasters in the chosen testing area.
