Short summary
Adaptation to unforeseen, hazardous events requires the implementation of purposeful risk reduction strategies that aim at both taking effective measures and using funds most efficiently. Coordination of long-term and short-term risk management strategies is considered crucial. This research discusses current problems and indicates benefits to establishing or strengthening the link between spatial planning (long-term perspective) and emergency management authorities (short-term perspective).
