Breaking fresh ground in protecting Alpine Environments
Flood Risk Management Plans Conference

Graz, 25-26 March 2014
The first cycle of the European flood directive 2007/60/EC now ends with the preparation of the flood risk management plans. Especially in alpine areas we encounter specific problems e.g. defining the particular aims, developing a catalogue of measurements or selecting specific methods for flood risk reduction. At the conference “Breaking fresh ground in protecting Alpine Environments – Flood Risk Management Plans” we want to discuss these problems and challenges by looking at specific examples from different alpine countries.
The conference was held in Graz, Austria on 25. and 26. March 2014. The detailed updated programme here.
