According to WP1 and WP4 tasks, the analysis of overlapped effects due to Slow Onset Disasters (SLODs) occurrence in the Urban Built Environment (BE) can be quickly carried out using remote sources and matrix approaches.
A new paper on the matter has been just published on Sustainability (MDPI), and is now online available. The paper is entitled "Pedestrian Single and Multi-Risk Assessment to SLODs in Urban Built Environment: A Mesoscale Approach". The work proposes a methodology that can: (1) provide insights for simulation activities in critical BE conditions, thanks to the identification of critical daily conditions for each of the factors and for single and multiple risks and (2) support the development of design and regeneration strategies in SLOD-prone urban BEs, as well as the identification of priority areas in the urban BE. The focus is the pedestrian risk in view of their direct engagement in activities under critical exposure conditions.
The paper also belongs to the Special issue entitled "Towards More Walkable and Liveable Cities: Perceptions, Attitudes, Methods, Technologies and Policies".
