Subject: Creation of effective monitoring system of the current exogenous and man-made phenomena at former deposits of minerals (environmental re-naturalization of the areas of Solotvyno village and its salt mines, Miskolc mines, Košice region landslide/Solivary salt field/mines, Romanian mines….., etc.).

Indicator: Risk management index (RMI) of the cross-border area

Main objective: to create a joint monitoring system of modern exogenous and man-made phenomena in order to warn stakeholders about occurrence of natural and man-made disasters.

Activities: 1. Gathering, storing and processing information about the conditions of development the natural and man-made disasters, analysis and preparation of data on the possibility of emergency situations (due to karst-suffosion processes and phenomena the stability of the geological environment decreases, leading catastrophic subsidences. The increased risk of emergencies is caused by activation of karst processes, typical of urban areas affected man-made flooding.) The database of natural and man-made disasters will be created. 2. Creation of a modern cartographic basis and a complex of mathematical models for carrying out of protective measures and increase their efficiency. (Creation of a topographic plan with a scale of 1: 1000 with a contour interval of 0.5 m by photogrammetry and GPS/GNSS measurements). 3. Carrying out engineering, hydro-geological, geophysical and mapping studies of areas with karsts and subsidence (in order to determine the rate of development of karst occurrence, geodetic surveying should be done half-yearly). 4. Conducting geodetic and geophysical studies using laser scanning technology, GIS and mathematical modeling with purpose of real time evaluation of mines, development of the monitoring systems of geological environment (creating 3D model of karst occurrence, works of evaluation of salt karsts give an opportunity to detect active dangerous geological or man-made processes even before their beginning). 5. Creation of joint programs of prevention of subsidence and landslide processes development in cross-border area and movement saline groundwater in the valley of Tisza River (creation of risk maps with monitoring results that will enable to timely develop measures aimed at localization of dangerous phenomena and preventing their progressing negative development.). 6. Joint measures for forecasting and informing central and local executive authorities in the field of emergencies. 7. Joint development programs for coordinated action by central authorities in the field of environmental protection and emergency, regional and local authorities for stabilizing and further improving environmental situation (it will make it possible to plan the development of the area outside zones of risk in accordance with the master plan. Both territorial communities and bodies of urban development, environmental and emergency services need such studies). 8. Conducting joint educational programs and workshops on joint activities between emergency services, authorities and local communities to prevent natural and man-made disasters, as well as joint measures in emergencies.
