Protecting against natural disasters
Because nature is unpredictable and powerful, protection against natural disasters will never be a perfect science. But it is a highly sought-after skill, involving many disciplines, to minimise the impact of events such as floods, torrential lava flows and landslides, which are becoming more severe and more frequent due to global climate change.
Protection against natural disasters safeguards not only people and property, but also our living environment. Flood control is therefore a major component of sustainable development. It takes into account, on an equal footing, the integrity of built areas and the ecological and economic value of waterways
An ounce of prevention...
We have expertise in all stages of flood control: mapping, analysis, evaluation, planning, prevention and long-term management, thanks to our hydrogeology, geomorphology and environmental experts. And, last but not least, we offer decision-support and engage in dialog to explain the necessity of implementing sustainable measures. Because, as the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
