The Département de l'aménagement du territoire (DATer) of the Ministère de l’Energie et de l’Aménagement du Territoire (MEA) in Luxembourg has awarded a contract to space4environment to support its territorial development objectives and strategies. The primary aim of the contract is to produce a spatially explicit and cross-sectoral hazard map that helps identifying vulnerable areas in the country and contributes to the identification of individual disasters and the likelihood of their impacts. The information included in the final map should support the preparation of the Programme Directeur d’Aménagement du Territoire 2050 (PDAT) by DATer, which includes the identification of potential use conflicts, protection priorities and adaptation of land planning measures in Luxembourg.

The activities to be developed by space4environment are supported by the inter-ministerial working group (WG) on “vulnerability/risk mapping”, which was created within the framework between PDAT (MEA) and the inter-ministerial Committee on Risk Management from the Ministère de l'Intérieur (MI). space4environment participated to the kick-off meeting of the inter-ministerial WG, which took place on 11 December 2019 at the MI premises in Luxembourg, and presented its mandate for the project.
