The Ebro DeltaThe purpose of the flood risk management plans is to identify means of reducing the impacts of flooding. In addition to using the project knowledge which supports the preliminary assessments and flood risk mapping, several other tasks are researching areas which will support the preparation of flood risk management plans.

These include:

  • The understanding of community preparedness and resilience from Task 11
  • Identification, design and appraisal of sustainable flood mitigation measures from Task 12, Task 13 and Task 14
  • Emergency evacuation planning, coupling inundation and traffic models from Task 17
  • Decision support for long-term planning and the selection of a portfolio of measures and instruments for flood risk management from Task 18

Breaches after the impact of the October 1990 storm in the Illa de BudaIt should be recognised that the process models and decision support software will require further development for application in practice.  The FLOODsite project will prototype methods and pilot their application but only to a pre-competitive level.
