Versiunea în limba română

KEYWORDS: hazard, risk, disaster, environment 


VALUE :1.275.000 lei  

The value’ s repartition on years:

2007 – 110.000 lei;

2008 – 425.000 lei;

2009 – 350.000 lei;

2010 – 390.000 lei.


LENGTH: 36 month


   The project’s general objectives are the following:

  • the inventory of the natural and technological hazards which appear worldwide;
  • the inventory of the catastrophies produced worldwide and their consequences on the society and the environment;
  • deciphering the causes of producing and mechanisms of evolution for the hazards;
  • emphasizing, on different types of hazards, the conditions and the causes of the evolution from the hazards to disasters;
  • the thoroughgoing study of the vulnerability and risk concepts;
  • elaborating measures of preventing the effects of the hazards on the societry and the environment, of avoiding the appearence of disasters;
  • elaborating measures for limitation and removal of the disaster’s impact;
  • creating a data account regarding the hazards and the disasters’impact.

The specific objectives of the project consist of:

  • the inventory of the natural and technological hazards appearing in Romania;
  • the inventory of the natural and technological hazards that happened in Romania;
  • analysing and deducing the types of disasters that are possibly to occur in Romania;
  • deducing the particularities and specific of the Romanian territory as elements that determine the manifestation of certain hazards and the appearence of certain disasters;
  • knowing the vulnerability of the Romanian territory and the the risk of producing disasters;
  • determining the necessary measures for preventing the effects of the hazards on the society and the Romanian territory and also for avoiding the appearence of the disasters;
  • determining the necessary measures for limiting and removing the impact of the disasters that will occur in Romania;
  • elaborating unitary strategies of preventing and centralised monitoring of the hazards, of monitoring and efficient intervention in case of disasters on Romanian territory;
  • creating a data account regarding the hazards and the disasters appeared on national level.
