Description

This STAR-FLOOD country report analyses the flood risk governance in France. France is confronted with different types of flooding. Flooding is in particular seen as a 'urban issue' within the framework of the decentralisation process. The role of the State became smaller over the years. Recommendations are made to increase resilience, for instance by interconnecting the different scales, and to redesign flood risk governance in France.
