Project description

Demonstrate new and/or improved methods for improving the climate resilience of target sites

Role of Ghent University
Ghent University works on two pilot cases in Ninove and Denderleeuw, in cooperation with the Province of East Flanders. We want to analyze how we can increase the resilience of local communities against flooding. Multilayered safety means that also citizens and companies will have to guard themselves against flooding. FRAMES wants to test how they can be involved in and contribute to dealing with flood risks. Furthermore, Ghent University is also involved in the development of a knowledge platform. By analyzing the findings of the different pilot cases in different context, cross-national conclusions and recommendations can be formulated.
