STRIMAII: Saxon-Czech Flood Risk Management II


Analysis of tools and measures for the flood damage mitigation on buildings, infrastructure and in the countryside.

Cross-border cooperation in flood risk management is important not only because the emergency information sharing is needed to improve preparedness. Other reasons are the need for the flood management experience exchange and the coordination of damage mitigation strategies. Crucial actors in this process are Mayors of (potentially) affected villages, citizens and entrepreneurs influencing run-off conditions in the river basin scale. The project builds on the first steps undertaken within STRIMA and aims to further deepen the cross-border flood risk management, including the prevention of damages on buildings and infrastructure. It also supports the continuity of cross-border flood risk management forums. Important part of the project is the economic and institutional analysis of natural flood retention measures.
