Description
Bloc 1

Overall objective

Creating tailor-made action plans for rivers to combat flood risks. The plans have to be supported by all stakeholders alongside the rivers.

Bloc 2

Outputs

Tailor-made action plans for specific rivers containing flood defence actions, flood prevention actions and preparedness actions

Bloc 3

Expected result

New strategies in which best fitted short term, middle long term and long term solutions are identified for each specific region to protect them from floods.

Bloc 4

Cross-border added-value

Neighbouring countries face similar problems. It is important to exchange experiences with other countries to find the best solutions that fit for each region. In this project W&Z focuses on a rain river, but what is the best way of dealing with a tidal river or coastal areas? We want to have demonstrations of the tailor-made action plans in different places so that the tools to create the most successfull action plans can be rolled out on other rivers in the future.
