Danube Floodplain - Reducing the flood risk through floodplain restoration along the Danube River and tributaries


During the last decades, Europe suffered major catastrophic floods along the Danube. Therefore the Flood Directive asks for adequate and coordinated measures to reduce flood risk without conflicting WFD objectives. The main objective of the project is improving transnational water management and flood risk prevention while maximizing benefits for biodiversity conservation. The expected change is improved knowledge, among the countries located within Danube River Basin, related to integrative water management through restoration of floodplains, combination of classical and green infrastructure, natural retention measures, involving all related stakeholders.

The main activities of the project are: updating the floodplain areas inventory and their ranking using the Floodplain Evaluation Matrix-FEM; assessing, by using the pre-selected pilot areas, of the efficiency of floodplain projects in the Danube District and developing tools for increasing the knowledge and cooperation of experts, practitioners, decision makers and stakeholders on floodplain restoration.

The Project will develop tools contributing to DTP SO2.1:
1) The Danube basin wide floodplain restoration and preservation manual addressed mainly to practitioners;
2) A DRB Sustainable Floodplain management Strategic Guidance summarizing the key findings of the manual targeting a wider audience;
3) A DRB Roadmap comprising agreed next steps towards realizing floodplain projects.
