In the southeast region of France the Mediterranean environment combines high population densities, rapid land cover change and extreme climatic events in an IPCC global climate change hotspot. The region is subject to devastating floods and forest fires as well as other ecological hazards. Proximity to the Alps and sea further expose the population to geohazards such as mass movements, earthquakes and coastal flooding. Few areas in the world concentrate as many environmental hazards and risks as southeast France, so it is an ideal place to learn about risk management.

 

In the Nice Côte d’Azur area, a multitude of field sites can be investigated to discover monitoring and mitigation strategies that are applicable throughout the world.

In addition, there is a wide range of digital data available: high resolution aerial and satellite imagery, Digital Elevation Models, raster and vector GIS databases describing land cover, building units, vegetation, stream networks… The context is therefore also propitious to modeling hazards and risks both spatially and temporally using GIS and remote sensing.
