In a society where there is a noticeable increase in risk culture, it becomes crucial to understand how to navigate and effectively respond to both national and international challenges. Climate change, for example has an impact on different aspects of crisis management. Dams have to be built, evacuation plan must be in order. The Regional Crisis Centre of Wallonia (CRC) in Belgium is involved in mapping all risks around the Walloon part of Belgium.
