This project aims to support Dutch municipalities with their risk communication activities related to external safety. A relatively straight-forward approach is advocated in which one of the important steps is to reach out to the citizenry to inquire about their needs and wishes regarding communication on external safety issues in their community. This projest is supported by a grant from IPO (the cooperating Dutch provinces) and was conducted in close cooperation between Actorion, UT and Royal Haskoning. The Dutch government supported this initiative by funding a English translation of the Manual for Risk Communication. At present many Dutch municipalities utilize the AcUtHas framework.
