The overall aim of the pilot study is to develop and test aspects of the flood risk management methodology for a coastal site developed by other tasks within the FLOODsite project. This included

  • Looking at ways to combine the calculation of failure probability for coastal defences with evaluations of socio-economic damages; and

  • Developing an integrated micro-scale risk analysis tool/methodology for future planning in the coastal zone that is transferable to other coastal zones.

An advisory board assisted the project team with this pilot study.  This included members from different local, regional, and federal authorities as well as non-governmental organisations.  This included representatives from the Schleswig-Holstein Ministry of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Areas, Department of Coastal Defence; Schleswig-Holstein Ministry of the Interior, Department of Disaster Management; and authorities for rural affairs in Husum and Kiel.

The coastal defence authorities in the Federal State of Schleswig-Holstein intend to establish an integrated coastal defence management scheme.  The results from this pilot study provide valuable information for future coastal defence planning within the pilot site area.

Summary information regarding this pilot study is available in the following languages:

Key words: German Bight Coast, St. Peter-Ording, coastal flooding, flood risk analysis, scenarios, risk analysis tool
