ESCAPE: European Solutions by Co-operation and Planning in Emergencies (for coastal flooding) (Escape)
Date du début: 26 sept. 2002, Date de fin: 29 sept. 2004 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Escape aimed to minimise the effects of flooding situations in coastal areas, through improving contingency plans, increasing public awareness and developing systems for monitoring high water and evacuation possibilities. Achievements: The project addressed the issue of flooding in coastal areas. The project is seen as very successful in achieving its objectives. The objectives mentioned in the application were: “To set-up a multi-faceted transnational disaster management strategy for flooding situations in one or more of the coastal areas of the North Sea Region. This has resulted in a transnational framework, modules and elements for the (further) development of integrated national, regional or local contingency plans, intended to reduce the effects of flooding disasters.An innovative approach for contingency plans has been assured by linking the pilot sessions of the High water Information System and the Evacuation Model. Furthermore public awareness modules have convinced people that a flood can happen every day, and what the public may expect from the government and what they can do to help themselves in case of a flood. Implementation of this concept within other regions of the partner countries as well as within other (European) coastal regions has been stimulated by the ESCAPE-partners.” The Transnational Framework for contingency plans for example, provides a guideline and recommendations on working together in a transnational setting in the field of disaster relief.
