Transport security and accessibility are essential for a balanced and sustainable development of ASP. Due to current climatic trends, the vulnerability of transport infrastructure to natural hazards has increased. But the specific threats to transport infrastructure have not yet been tackled in a systematic joint effort.
Therefore the goal of PARAmount is to improve risk management strategies for infrastructure protection by the adaptation of existing tools and practices to these special requirements.
The project consortium is of cross-sectoral character: key actors from transport and natural hazards management are integrated as PPs and observers. Long-term practical implementation will be assured by the establishment of regional risk dialogue. This will improve risk awareness, quality of decisions and positive impacts of PARAmount measures.
