2.3 Summarise findings of the assessment (include full report in annex, if relevant) and link these to the Action
This section summarises the findings which will then form the basis for the intervention logic. It does not consist of a description of the foreseen Action. Avoid including findings which are not clearly linked to the Action strategy.
If there is a report of the assessment it may be annexed and the results summarised here with regard to the proposed Action.
When relevant, assessment of risks potentially arising from natural disasters should be provided.
