Predictions indicate that over the next 70 years there will be a doubling in both the number of people affected by flooding each year (to 0.5-0.8 million) and annual damages increasing to 7.7-15 billion €. WeSenseIt will enable citizens to take a major role in prevention of flooding.
WeSenseIt is a four year European Framework 7 funded project. The project will develop a citizen-based observatory of water, which will allow citizens and communities to become active stakeholders in information capturing, evaluation and communication. The project will bring together the expertise of 14 European Partners ranging across Academic Institutions to Research Centres and Industry.
