Replies to the questionnaire
The questionnaire was sent out on 31 July 2003 to all Member
States permanent representations and acceding countries delegations.
EEA countries have also been involved in the exercise. The
latest contributions have been received in May 2004. So far
24 countries have officially replied to the questionnaire
and the Commission has carried out an analysis
of the replies.
Contributions have also been received from the insurance
sector and from other stakeholders.
In the meantime, the Directorate-General Research of the
European Commission carried out a survey on the
hazard/risk mapping research projects on the basis of a questionnaire
sent out at the end of 2003 and produced an overview
of the results. The Commission's Joint Research Centre carried
out also a study on existing hazard mapping applications.
Moreover, the European
Environment Agency issued in early 2004 a report called
"mapping the impacts of recent natural disasters and
technological accidents in Europe".
