Flood risk strategies have been applied for ages and will probably be applied as long as people will be living in flood prone areas. The STAR-FLOOD project runs from October 2012 until March 2016. The project is linked to the implementation of the Floods Directive (2007/60/EC). Milestones in the implementation of this Directive are the establishment of:

  • Preliminary flood risk assessment (December 2010)
  • Flood hazard and flood risk maps (December 2013)
  • Flood risk management plans (December 2015 and from then on every 6 years).
