· Preparation of a draft methodology for flood mapping in line with the EU policies.
· Production of a high resolution flood hazard and risk maps for the Project area.
· Production of a pilot case for integration of the flood risk information in local or regional spatial plan.
· Integration of flood maps into the Water Management Information System.
· Dissemination of the results and capacity building:
Transfer of the technology (know-how);
Preparation of the long term concept for use and for regular 6-year update of the maps.
The main beneficiary institutions are:
Additional beneficiaries are:
Republic Geodetic Authority (RGA).
Promotion of the sustainable flood risk management measures and best practices, linked with environmental protection, low impact development and sustainable land use planning, are main characteristics of the new EU flood control policy. Although Serbia is not yet a member of the EU, but as a neighboring country to the other EU member states, Serbia is making a great effort in applying and implementing the same principles and approaches. That shows the commitment of Serbia to develop the effective flood prevention and mitigation works in cooperation and in coordination with the EU member and other states in the shared international river basins.
The specific objective of this Project is to prepare flood hazard and flood risk maps, which will be incorporated in Flood Risk Management plans for the Project area.
The Project area includes:
Promotion of the sustainable flood risk management measures and best practices, linked with environmental protection, low impact development and sustainable land use planning, will deliver multiple benefits by increasing public awareness and by informing Serbian competent authorities about flood risk and how to adequately deal with it. The Ministry of Agriculture, Trade, Forestry and Water Management and other responsible ministries dealing with flood prevention and mitigation, competent regional and local authorities, local technical and civil protection services, were identified as the ma
The main goal of the project is contribution to the harmonization with the European Flood Directive and World Flood Directive, and introduction of the "living with floods" principle in Serbia. This goal is in line with the Serbian Government’s European Integration Strategy and with the membership in the International Commission for the Protection of Danube River and International Sava River Basin Commission.
The specific objective of this Project is to prepare flood hazard and flood risk maps, which will be incorporated in Flood Risk Management plans for the Project area. The flood hazard and flood risk maps will be prepared in such a way that they can be easily updated on a regular basis (every six years, as set in EU Flood Directive). They will serve as a management tool for flood protection and spatial planning in the Project area in future years, and will help in “gradual and broad implementation of non-structural flood protection measures”, as well as a model for other river basins within the Republic of Serbia.
