FLOODMED-evidenza

Background

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.

Scopo

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.
