The EU-Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) aims generally to map governance processes and capacities within the EUSALP perimeter.
Action Group 8 started such a mapping for natural hazards with a focus on risk governance. The research cannot provide aholistic evaluation of governance mechanisms in all member states but instead an initial mapping, based on the expertise of the group members.
Therefore, workshops with a comparative framework for assessing governance characteristics, qualities and capacities were used to receive a graphical evaluation.
Results and critical aspects were discussed within the group and a comparative analysis of the responsibilities and capacities in the existing national management systems were added in the study as a basis for further projects and research.
