STAR-FLOOD : STrengthening And Rede-signing European FLOOD risk practices: Towards appropriate and resilient flood risk governance arrangements

Description:

It is expected that flood risks from rivers will increase significantly in the coming decades, not only because of climate change, but also due to increasing urbanization of river areas and soil subsidence. To deal with these risks, many European countries focus on building, reinforcing and maintaining flood defense works. STAR-FLOOD takes as its starting point that such a focus is necessary, but not sufficient in order to ensure sustained flood protection. This project aims to uncover the opportunities and barriers of broadening the Flood Risk Strategies in different countries. The project supports authorities and other stakeholders in vulnerable urban agglomerations in Europe by designing appropriate and resilient Flood Risk Governance Arrangements (FRGAs). The final goal is to develop design principles for FRGAs and their implications for policies and law at the level of the EU, its member states, regional authorities, and public-private partnerships.
