Disaster Risk Management


Disaster Risk Management

One of the most decisive factors for the successful develo­pment, construction and operation of infra­st­ructure systems is the assessment and management of natural hazards – e.g. erosion, slope insta­bi­lities (lands­lides), flooding and seismic hazards – which are often conse­quences of climate change. When developing and designing engineering projects, it is of utmost impor­tance to assess various types of potential natural hazards by conducting desk and field studies that are supported by geotech­nical inves­ti­ga­tions. Subse­quently, appro­priate mitigation measures are planned.

Role of ILF

Natural hazard management is part of the design process and focuses on sustainable and cost effective project solutions and safe operation. ILF engages in the whole lifecycle of engineering projects and is involved in feasi­bility studies, all design phases, and in construction and operation. ILF’s experts assess and analyze the site condi­tions to provide the best possible management of natural hazards.
