Risk governance of natural hazards in the Alpine region is a sensitive and complex issue. In the context of residual risk and cases of overload, it becomes an even greater challenge. The question of how to provide sufficient protection for the affected population may cause quite a headache for policy- and decision-makers at all administrative levels. This dossier has been created to shed light on how to carry out successful risk governance in the context of residual risk and cases of overload and provides information on: * the concepts of residual risk and cases of overload and their current consideration in Alpine risk governance of natural hazards, * the necessity of doing research on and informing the public about this topic, * the reasoning behind why actions to improve the situation are required. Moreover, this document presents 1) concrete recommendations, and 2) good practice examples for both policy- and decision-makers as well as the affected populations in all Alpine countries that illustrate options of how to improve the risk governance of natural hazards in the context of residual risk and cases of overload.
