The £2m CREDIBLE consortium is part of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) PURE Programme
- To improve the handling of uncertainty in relation to natural hazards, by both scientists and stakeholders;
- To improve communication between the science and stakeholder communities.
Achieving these objectives will involve the dissemination and uptake of state-of-the-art methodology across all natural hazard areas, adapted as necessary to meet the demands of specific situations. It will create consistency and greater scientific rigour regarding the treatment of uncertainty in natural hazard risk assessment. This in turn will enhance the capacity, knowledge and skills of stakeholders from private and public sectors, and improve societal security through better and more consistently informed decision-making under uncertainty.
