Let’s stay in touch!
Work Package 1
In a first step, the partnership will develop methods to assess heavy rain risks under different categorized physical conditions and land uses of areas in Central Europe. The tool will support the identification and communication of high risk areas. Thus, e.g. adapted methods for urban and rural land uses in mountainous and low land, settings etc. will be specified.
The outputs create the fundament for public authorities to adapt their regional and local development to the existing risks and by this to improve their management capacities.
Work Package 2
The Partners will jointly create a tool and a strategy to reduce the risk of heavy rain events. The tool will include a catalogue of risk reduction measures for different risk situations, guidance for the selection of best options for measures and guidance for the application and implementation of these measures. In addition, a joint risk management strategy for heavy rain risks in urban and rural areas will improve local and regional as well as European-wide flood-policies.
Work package 3
Pilot activities in all participating partner regions are implemented to test the developed joint methods and tools and to prove their feasibility and applicability. There are 7 pilot actions, with different characteristics to give a wide range of application conditions. The pilot actions improve the developed measures with experiences and make them transferable. In addition they deliver show cases for implementations.
Work Package 4
The partners develop a toolbox with five tools to reduce heavy rain risks and to improve the integrated environmental risk management capacities of regional and local administrations in Central Europe. The toolbox contains:
