The sub-project is divided into three activities:

A4.1: ROS analysis for Norwegian municipalities

This activity focuses on natural hazards threatening critical infrastructure. According to Norwegian legislation, the municipalities have a duty to carry out a risk and vulnerability analysis and plan and prepare for emergencies in a short- and long term perspective. The methodology is developed in interaction with the Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection (DSB) and adapted to DSBs guideline for ROS-analyses. Testing of the methodology in carried out in collaboration with Stryn and Hornindal municipalities, and is part of the update of their overall ROS analysis.

A4.2: ROS for construction projects

The activity will start development of a ROS methodology for different technical solutions for construction projects, which also communicate uncertainty related to various technical solutions. Cost / risk should be mapped to illustrate how different risk management strategies affects the cost when choosing technical solution. The aim is that the product becomes a useful communication tool between stakeholders when technical solutions must be decided.

A4.3: ROS and climate

The purpose of the activity is to develop tools for updating ROS analyzes with respect to climate change. The need for such vulnerability analysis is not at least become clear after the release of "Climate in Norway 2100" in which it is clearly stated by the authorities that the municipalities have the responsibility for adapting to climate change. The activity will be conducted in cooperation with a project for Larvik and Lardal municipality, a pilot project supported by Miljødirektoratet.
