Transboundary Flood Risk Management: Experiences from the UNECE Region (2009)

Description

This publication is based on the discussion and findings of the Workshop on Transboundary Flood Risk Management organized under the Water Convention in April 2009 in cooperation with the Governments of Germany and the Netherlands as well as WMO. It builds on the practical experience from 10 river basins in the UNECE region. The examples are offered here not as good practices, but rather as an analysis of concrete situations, problems encountered and progress made, as well as of remaining challenges and possible solutions. The aims are to document practical experience, together with general conclusions, which can be applied throughout the region. In so doing, the objective is to provide inspiration to water managers, policymakers and land planners, and thereby help to reduce risks and damage from floods in the UNECE region and beyond.
