WP4 – Measures and governance approaches

WP4 focuses on measures to deal with subsidence: technical, governance or legal measures to decrease the rate of subsidence (mitigation), to adapt to its consequences (adaptation) or to compensate those who suffer from subsidence-related damage (compensation). We study the usefulness, necessity and feasibility of these measures.
