To the project

Thematic section

In March 2022, the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG ECHO) launched its yearly project financing campaign. In May 2022, the French Red Cross, the Italian Red Cross, the Italian National Research Council, the French Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières and University Paris Dauphine-PSL submitted their project "REsponsive, Data ecosystem for Resilient and Operational SEcurity Strategies" (RED ROSES), which was selected for financing.

The presentation that follows offers an immersion in the RED ROSES project, from its origins to its current state of play.

Title 1

When giving a presentation, you need to go after two main objectives: to convey information and avoid yawns. To do this, it can be good practice to make an outline and use words that will be imprinted in the memories of your audience.


Yep, you read that right. Interactivity and animation can turn even the most boring content into something super fun. In Genially, we use AI (Awesome interactivity) in all our designs so that you can level up with interactivity and turn your content into something that engages and provides value.

More about the goals

The French-Italian border is particularly exposed to natural hazards. Over the last few years, it was hit several times by floods, landslides as well as wildfires.

More about the goals

The goal of the RED ROSES project is to make DRR at the French-Italian border more efficient. In practice, it implements, tests and deploys a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) for the use of actors on both sides of the border, especially those related to Civil Protection. Thanks to this platform, actors will be able to access more and less recent data as well as cooperative decision-making tools.

Geographical scope:

    • Susa Valley (including the Moncenisio Dam water area)
      • Piedmont region
      • Savoie department
      • Hautes-Alpes department
    • Roya Valley
      • Liguria region
      • Piedmont region (Tende area)
      • Alpes Maritimes department

The RED ROSES partners have chosen to focus first on reinforcing the resilience of the area between French region Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur (PACA) and Italian region Liguria. This area is also the birthplace of rivers Roya, Var and Verdon as well as their tributaries. Once operational, the SDI could be replicated in other transborder regions in Europe and the rest of the world.

Wildfires have direct consequences on both human lives, commodities and natural heritage. They can also indirectly cause an enhancement of debris flows, erosion and avalanche danger,.The cross-border Alpine forest fires require a relatively large amount of resources for fire-fighting and prevention.On the Italian side of the study area, the last wildfire event was recorded in August 2021, between Airole and Olivetta San Michele, where a forestfire broke out near the Colle di Tenda state road 20, interrupting road communications.

When it comes to wildfires, in the past 20 years:- in Italy, 1,100,000 ha of forest have been burnt. Every year, an average of 11,000 fires occur, destroying more than 50,000 ha of wood each year;- in France, the Mediterranean mountains contribute 34.8% to national burned area.

The RED ROSES project will act on four levels in order to:

- strengthen a cooperation-based decision making process founded on shared data and information, methodologies and procedures, expertise and strategies in disaster risk management in compliance with the regional, national, and EU rules, protocols, and policies in charge at cross-border areas;

- enhance synergies at a translocal level, among existing systems already in use in each cross-border country, with the final result of improving the effectiveness of disaster risk management procedures.

- strengthen cooperation at an inter-organizational level, by adopting innovative low-cost, “user-centered" ICT-based strategies, by setting standards in data collection and sharing, promote collaborative governance of data through an ecosystem, web-based services and applications;

- provide the cross-border Civil Protection authorities and relevant stakeholders with existing and new relevant, multi-source data and low-cost, “user-centered" ICT-based tools and applications to improve wildfire and hydro-meteorological susceptibility, hazard and impact management strategies;

On October 4, 2020, storm Alex resulted in heavy rains and flash floods in the Roya Valley at the French-Italian frontier.Many infrastructure, economic and service facilities were destroyed, both in urban and rural areas. For instance, a dozen bridges were taken away by the water. Due to these damages, several villages such as Tende, Saorge, Sospel or Breil-sur-Rota, were doomed to isolation for several days. Over 4,000 households were without electricity in French departments of Alpes-Maritimes and Var. In Italy, the bad weather conditions caused two deaths, damage and numerous cases of missing persons in regions of Piedmont, Liguria and Valle d'Aosta.

With this feature ...

Before storm Alex that struck France and Italy in October 2020, many municipalities of the valley de la Roya had already developed Reduction Plans of Risks (PRR) of Avalanches and Landslides. Unfortunately, most of these plans did not analyze the risk of flood. Yet, because of this storm, the entire hydrographic network of three valleys was massively impacted and modified. Several cities in the south-eastern part of France had to be evacuated due to the high level of the hydrogeological risk.

Above this scheme, participants in the project also regularly took part in different types of meetings: kick-off meetings, technical meetings, project team meetings, monthly meetings...

The project was divided in six sub-divisions, called Work Packages (WPs), each one having its own managers, objectives, activities, milestones and deliverables. The WPs are connected following the the scheme below.

Your content is good, but it‘ll engage much more if it’s interactive. Capture your audience's attention with an interactive photo or illustration.

WP3: Data collection, storage and sharing in cross-border areas

WP4: Disaster risk prevention, preparedness and response in cross-border areas

WP6: Dissemination, communication strategy and stakeholders’ participatory processes

WP5: Technological implementation

WP2: Data management, governance in usage in the ecosystem

WP1: Project management and coordination
