Mr Evangelos Katsaros and Dr Christos Dimopoulos of CERIDES participated in the implementation of the field Exercises of the ALTER project in Armenia. The field exercises took place on the 29th, 30th of October 2019 and the 1st of November 2019, in the three pilot areas (Sisian, Kapan, and Akhtala).
The field exercises allowed all Armenian stakeholders of the ALTER project (both public and private), in cooperation with the EU participants from Cyprus (CERIDES) and Greece (National Observatory of Athens), to fully test the disaster management plans which are in place with regards to the risk of dam failures in the corresponding areas, using large-scale realistic exercise scenarios.
