Ecosystem resilience for mitigation of natural disasters
The goal of the ERMOND, an Eco-DRR project, is to facilitate new thinking and new solutions in preventing damage and loss of lives due to natural hazards in the Nordic countries.
Many natural hazards threaten the Nordic countries. Storms, floods, avalanches and volcanic eruptions have caused major damage and loss of lives in the Nordic countries during recent years.
The ERMOND project is divided into three phases:
- Compilation of an overview of natural disasters in the Nordic region and how ecological restoration actions can be used to mitigate such hazards
- Conduction of regional feasibility case studies of strategic build up of ecosystem resilience
- Recommendation of actions to enhance build up of ecosystem resilience in the Nordic region.
