Controlling risks and their impacts to ensure regional resilience
Global change is making regions more vulnerable to natural hazards and anthropogenic pollution. BRGM has made risk science a cornerstone of its activities.
To promote sustainable development and support the regions, it is implementing an integrated approach to the risk chain, from prevention to adaptation, through preparation, warning, crisis management support, recovery and remediation. BRGM is also involved in managing former mining or industrial sites and rehabilitating contaminated wasteland. In particular, it promotes the recycling of excavated soil by developing characterisation methods to certify soil recovery potential and ensure its traceability.
