DECATASTROPHIZE (DECAT) is an EU-funded project that seeks to develop an effective early-warning and coordination system. Providing early warning combined with emergency response strategies can save thousands of lives and protect people, property and the environment in the event of natural and man-made disasters. Civil Protection can benefit from improved analysis tools to handle the vast amount of information available at all levels of the organization.
