Major improvements in dealing with natural hazards have been achieved in recent years. This is the finding of the progress report to the Federal Council on the implementation of the integrated risk management system for natural hazards. The key achievements of the past four years include the surface run-off risk map, which closes an important gap in the underlying data. When it comes to disaster response and regeneration, the federal government not only supports the cantons and communes financially, but now also provides a guide to emergency response planning for natural hazards such as floods.
