The new FP6 programme project Medigrid is targeted in Global Change and Ecosystems sub-priority. This paper will discuss this project and will describe its primary aim — development of a framework for multi-risk assessment of natural disasters. We have considered several aspect and user requirements during the design of architecture. The service oriented architecture based on the Globus Toolkit 4 has been chosen. The data management services will be implemented on the top of the OGSA-DAI framework with several improvements and extension. We will use a workflow management system for integration purpose. A portal technology has been chosen as user interface.
