The 'Irima' (risk science) exploratory PEPR

'Irima''s objective is to formalise 'risk science' and thus contribute to the development of a new strategy for the management of risks and disasters and the impacts thereof in the context of global, anthropogenic and climate change. As such, this programme is working on a series of research and expertise development projects involving observations, analysis and support for decision-makers. The overall aim of this programme is thus to accelerate the transition towards a society able to face up to a whole range of threats (hydro-climatic, telluric, technological, health, etc.) with increased resilience and from a sustainable development perspective.
