Introduction to Sustainable Risk Mitigation for a More Resilient Europe --  Europe at Risk (Following EU Funded Research on Hazar and Risks) --  Impact and Losses of Natural and Na-Tech Disasters in Europe --  Current Mitigation Practices in the EU --  Risk Futures in Europe --  From Global to Local and from Local to Global: Examples of Event Scenarios in Europe.

This book comprises the main results of the Scenario (Support on Common European Strategy for sustainable natural and induced technological hazards mitigation) project, funded as a Specific Support Action under the VI FP. This book addresses three main needs: first, it constitutes an assessment of the situation of Europe as far as natural na-tech risks are considered; second, it suggests future research themes to be opened of widened so as to tackle new and emerging threats as well as changes in the potential response to risk governance, in order to improve the way scientific and technical expertise informs decision making regarding all fields of mitigation, ranging from structural to non structural measures, such as training, education and land use planning.
