About the Project

Risk Management for Large Scale Infrastructures in the Romanian Bulgarian cross border area

In the past important Large Scale Infrastructure/ LSI objectives were treated with maximum of secrecy, without any consideration of social acceptance or even understanding by the involved population.

The identified problem is the incremental risk factor due to the lack of knowledge and understanding of the context and functioning of LSI in the RO BG cross border area.

LSI was localized only taking in account technical

and economic reasons.

What LSI means

Dams and power plants, bridges, nuclear industry units, chemical plants, military units, waste treatment plants are LSI which generated huge anthropic hazard sources which are included eventually in emergency management plans

Project objective

  • Main objective is to reduce the calculated risks generated by the public and private LSI by increasing the level o social-economic acceptance of the existing and future LSI in the RO-BG cross border area.
