The first fact sheet of the STAR-FLOOD programme is online. STAR-FLOOD stands for STrengthening And Redesigning European FLOOD risk practices: Towards appropriate and resilient flood risk governance arrangements. This program was awarded a grant of 5.4 Million Euros by the European Union (FP7). The project is focused on analyzing, explaining, eval-uating and designing policies to better deal with flood risks from rivers in urban agglomerations across Europe. The results of this ambitious program are expected to be highly relevant for policies and law at the European, national and regional level and for the development of public-private part-nerships. STAR-FLOOD runs from 1 October 2012 until 31 March 2016.
