The HazRunoff project is expected to accelerate and improve the process of early warning, early detection, response and follow-up to floods and multiple hazmat contamination in transitional waters. Specifically, this will be achieved via the following outcomes:

  • Increased preparedness and knowledge on multiple types of floods
  • Faster detection of hazmat incidents, both oil and chemical in transitional waters
  • A more efficient follow-up of pollution incidents in transitional waters
  • Increased awareness on potential maritime pollution originated in inland and estuarine waters
  • Stronger and safer capacity for identification and monitoring of contaminated areas
  • Improved contingency planning
  • Increased awareness around hazard identification and risk perception
  • Improved knowledge of chemical properties and behaviour of pollutants in transitional waters
  • Improved knowledge and awareness around multiple hazards via bespoke training materials, courses and exercising
