Ouragans 2017 - Ouragans 2017 - Catastrophe, risque et résilience

Sharing learning from post-disaster research for strengthening individual and collective response and adaptation capacities in the context of climate change (Leeward Islands – 2017 hurricane season) – TIREX

Submission summary

The TIREX project is a continuation of the first collective missions carried out last October in the West Indies following the three hurricanes, Irma, José and Maria. The objective is to complete the impact analysis and strengthen the monitoring of the territorial reconstruction, by favoring the comparative analysis between the territories of the North of the Lesser Antilles, and by formalizing continuous scientific back analysis methods. It proposes to participate in the improvement of the cyclone alert, to identify the inherited vulnerability factors, to reinforce the capacities of adaptation and response of territories and societies in a context of climate change. TIREX will be organized in complementary tasks that cross the competences of all members of the group (risk geography, spatial analysis, geomorphology, political science, scientific mediation, atmospheric physics, modeling, climatology). TIREX brings a pre-operational dimension of support to risk management and reconstruction stakeholders, including populations, through the transfer and implementation of results. The consolidation, dissemination and enhancement of project results will be adapted to the cultural and geographical context of the targeted territories. It will mobilize innovative knowledge transfer and education tools, based on participatory approaches, situational scenarios, online and interactive digital tools, guides to good practices ... The project will incorporate the latest knowledge on the evolutions due to climate change in the Caribbean brought by the ongoing C3AF program on climate change and its consequences in the Caribbean
