Grenoble-Alpes Métropole first events

Sep 6, 2023

Grenoble-Alpes Métropole through ADAPTNOW project launched a local risks and resilience community with most of the municipalities of their territory, including local rulers and technicians. The purposes of this work community are:

  • Help them to use the crisis decision support tools;
  • Produce for them some risks documents, including risk acculturation and communication towards the population;
  • Knowledge development to give data to reduce the vulnerabilities in the local public policies;
  • Gather working groups to develop news capacity about natural risks and their management.

They held two first meetings about this risks and resilience community.

The first meeting has launched the work group with a roundtable discussion about the municipality’s requirements, the local risks management tools and the work plan of the community. After first part of the event, the metropolis and the Isère prefecture exposed the rules and responsibilities of the municipalities and of Mayors in crisis.

The second meeting was a work filed trip about forest fire, rockfall and protection forest and rules about the cleaning of brushwood against forest fire. The trip has been animated by the metropolis, the Municipality of La Tronche which hosted them, Frederic Berger of INRAE institute, the national forest office and the Isère prefecture with the presence of AURA-EE.
