I-STORMS
Integrated Sea sTORm Management Strategies
It has been more than 2 years of coordinated efforts, hard work and constructive collaboration, among the I-STORMS Partners, that have enabled us to create tools and to develop joint strategies for safeguarding the Adriatic-Ionian area from sea storm emergencies, paving the way for our macro-region to improve risk preparedness in its coastal areas.

The intensified by climate change phenomenon of sea storms, as one of the major factors along with anthropic pressures, affecting coastal areas and causing damages to the environment, to the citizen’s quality of life, to cultural heritage sites and to business sectors, has demonstrated the imperative need for joint actions and strategies, which can be achieved through transnational cooperation of the territories involved.

The I-STORMS Project, funded by the lnterreg ADRION Programme, has effectively addressed this challenge, by delivering concrete tools and outputs for sharing knowledge, data and forecasts among the countries involved, improving their capacities in terms of early warning and civil protection procedures, increasing accuracy and reliability of sea storm forecasts and ultimately progressing risk management and preparedness as regards sea storms.

We hope that our approach will set the foundations for parallel and broader initiatives, raising awareness to other territories also affected by sea storms, as a consequence of climate change.

I-STORMS Guidelines
The I-STORMS Guidelines for translating data and forecasts to early warning and intervention procedures are meant to be an effective tool for the improvement and efficiency of interventions in the case of coastal risk.

I-STORMS Strategy
The I-STORMS Strategy addressed to national/regional key players of the ADRION basin aims at suggesting the most effective way to deal with management of data and forecasts and related Early Warning procedures. The strategy is based on the findings of the I-STORMS Guidelines and provides a link with the EU Civil Protection Mechanism and a consistency with the European legislative framework.

Permanent Cooperation Table
The I-STORMS Permanent Cooperation Table (PCT) was set up to ensure the durability, sustainability, capitalization and transfer of the project’s outputs and results. The set-up of the I-STORMS PCT is an opportunity to expand the level of knowledge and competence in the field of the coastal risk prevention and management with positive consequences for the civil protection system and the environmental planning.
