Monitoring, Forecasting and Best Practices for FLOOD Mitigation & Prevention in the CADSES Region




Hydrometeorological monitoring and flood forecasting are indispensable in preventing hydraulic hazard and ensuring civil protection. Implementing a sustainable plan to combat floods requires further activities, such as best practices for agricultural, forestry and land use management in flood risk areas. Methodologies must be developped within a transnational context, transending local concept.


Implementation of common methodologies and integrated strategies and actions for the prevention of flooding and the mitigation of their adverse impacts. Development of transnational co-operation in the field of flood protection, establishing a strong network, involving the public sector and research institutes, and converting scientific research into “user friendly” civil protection systems of monitoring and warning.
