WERA - HF SYSTEM NODE in the northern sector of the Adriatic Sea
HAZADR projectMain objectives of the HAZADR projects are: Upgrade the knowledge framework on the estimated environmental and socio-economic risks in the most vulnerable Adriatic areas due to natural and human-induced factors. Support decision-making process in preventing, reacting and overcoming emergencies (also for the benefit of countries not directly involved in the project but treated by oil spillage contamination in case of shipwrecks or collisions).
Harmonize, improve and shorten deployment time of the cross-border reaction capacity in the toxic and hazardous substances spill by enhancing the coordination / reaction capacity in the Adriatic EUROREGION. Set up a common database on the state of readiness and spatial distribution of pollution preventing equipment along the Adriatic coasts as well as the improvement of the operational instruments and oil spill mitigation programs to cope with the environmental and technological hazards.
Improve, through cross-border joint exercises in Adriatic and the establishment of an Adriatic Training and Research Centre, the cross-border coordination reaction capacity.
Improve an early warning system through a joint radar monitoring program based on a set of radar systems and VHF devices, leading to an advanced capacity of the entrusted Euroregion actors to identify potential sources of risks menacing ecosystems. Monitoring of sea-surface currents and directional waves by HF radars at the three pilot regions (North Adriatic, middle Croatian Adriatic, and south Italian coast (Apulia region).
