Risk Management in Alpine Watersheds


How to efficiently manage risks posed by mountain streams? This question is addressed by this project carried out for the Bavarian authorities. Processes such as floods, debris flows or mudflows are considered. Guidelines for preparing and evaluating strategies for managing natural hazards in Alpine valleys are developed. These guidelines will serve as the basis for future design and maintenance activities on infrastructure for natural hazard protection in Bavaria.
