1791-2010.12.08---WokrplaTackling Discrimination in the Workplace and Beyond

The Silken Berlaymont Hotel, Brussels - Wednesday 9th October 2013

Within the framework of the 2010-2015 Strategy for Equality between Women and Men, the European Commission is working hard to promote gender equality at all policy levels. Central to the mission is to provide women with the same levels of economic independence that men benefit from and to ensure that the pay gap is minimised, and ultimately erased.

Public Policy Exchange continues its equality platform with a special international symposium on tackling gender-based discrimination in the workplace and beyond. Participants will have the opportunity to exchange best practices with leading practitioners, international organisations and major stakeholders across Europe.

Faith Taylor

Faith is a PhD student in the Earth and Environmental Dynamics Research Group in the Department of Geography, King's College London. A geographer by background, Faith's expertise lie in satellite observation, mapping and modelling of a range of environmental phenomena. Her current research (supervised by Professor Bruce Malamud) looks at developing a stochastic model to simulate triggered landslide events and their impacts upon road networks.

Faith's involvement as an associate scientist in the LAMPRE project will be advising on WP6 (Research and tools for Preparedness/Prevention & for Recovery/Reconstruction), looking at the impacts of landslides on infrastructure networks.

Inauguration JRC Emergency Centre

The European Commission's central platform for disaster response, the Emergency Response Centre (ERC), was inaugurated in May 2013 in Brussels on the occasion of the Civil Protection Forum, which aims to address the EU's increasing role in disaster management.

Landslide hazard assessment and risk reduction requires synergic linkages between all users (operational and scientific) involved with different tasks and responsibilities in landslide risk management.

Products, services and other outcomes of LAMPRE, including geo-processing tools, landslide inventory and susceptibility maps, vulnerability and impact assessments, standards and best practices, can offer real benefits to a wide range of users.

The project talks to four main groups:

Operational users

LAMPRE addresses the needs of Regional and Local Authorities who manage crisis events and emergency or natural/ecological resources and deal with the direct or indirect economic and ecologic consequences of landslides, and also public organizations and private companies managing, monitoring, and maintaining transportation networks, and responsible for safety of people and materials transiting along transportation networks. 

Civil Protection Authorities (CPAs) at National, Regional and Local level

LAMPRE delivers EO-based products and services which empower the operational capacity of CPA to manage the landslides disaster cycle, in particular for preparedness/mitigation & recovery/reconstruction phases. 

Organizations that manage transportation networks

LAMPRE considers specific needs such as managing expectations of probabilities of landslides intersecting different types of transportation networks.

Environmental, agricultural and forestry agencies

LAMPRE considers specific needs such as mapping and assessing landslide probability, and impact on blocked roads and rivers, including contribution of landslides to sediment changes in the system.

Policy and decision makers

LAMPRE considers specific needs such as estabilshing standards and procedures for landslide hazard evaluation.
   

Scientific community

LAMPRE produces scientific knowledge advancements on landslide phenomena relevant for the international scientific community and contributing to strenghten the European Reserach Area, and in particular:

LAMPRE addresses different scientific needs, including:

  • Understanding the relationship between climate and landslides and development of better models for fast landslides.
  • Short-term prediction of landslide activity, including the use of models and GIS.
  • Improving regional landslide susceptibility assessment models
  • Understanding on vulnerability to landslides 
  • Investigating and advancing numerical modelling to forecast landslide impact, and to design landslide impact scenarios
  • Developing geo-information processing tools for preparedness and for recovery
  • Defining standards for production and validation of landslide inventory and susceptibility maps
  • Enhancing the operational capacity of Copernicus (ex GMES) core and downstream services
   

Citizens

The population is interested to be aware about the basics of landslides events (where, when and to what extent the ground may become unstable) and which procedures should be followed if landslides occur for a the safety and security of their lives and territories. More specific questions on population needs are available on the LAMPRE educational area

Business

Include companies operating in a wide range of sectors, from Geo-spatial to ICT which can be directly or indirectly benefitd by LAMPRE products and services. In particular:

Companies in the Geo-Spatial Technologies and ICT 

Products and tools combining and integrating multiple types of data, information and technologies for landslide susceptibility and vulnerability modelling.

Companies operating in other sectors

Landslide hazard evaluation and risk reduction in the areas they are operate.
