Other International Definitions
The adverse impacts of hazards often cannot be prevented fully, but their scale or severity can be substantially lessened by various strategies and actions. Mitigation measures encompass engineering techniques and hazard-resistant construction as well as improved environmental policies and public awareness. It should be noted that in climate change policy, “mitigation” is defined differently, being the term used for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions that are the source of climate change.
Such actions may include diversion or containment measures to lessen the impacts of a flood or a spill.
Il peut s’agir notamment de mesures de confinement ou de détournement afin de réduire l’impact d’une inondation ou d’un déversement accidentel.
