Abstract

One of the main challenge in the functioning of any society is the safety from natural hazard. Among these hazards, rainfall-induced flow-like phenomena (e.g. debris flows, debris avalanches or hyperconcentrated flows) are a fundamental threat to the socio-economic development. To succeed in the challenge of a safer society, it is necessary to implement risk management strategies aiming at enhancing the preventing capacity to the occurrence of the abovementioned phenomena. Referring to the case study of Campania region (southern Italy), one of the most at risk areas in Europe, this paper shows how the results coming from the analyses of historical incident data can be profitably used by Authorities in charge of the risk to life reduction in implementing/improving, at medium scale, suitable warning systems with a cost-effective use of financial resources.
