Droughts and floods in rural areas

In rural areas natural disasters like droughts and floods pose special problems for local and regional authorities because of the wide extension of the concerned area - especially affected is the agricultural and forestry sector. The working group deals, on the one hand, with short-term solutions like an internet information tool about flood risk zones, and, on the other hand, with long-term measures including the renaturation of rivers or regional planning.

Working group members are:

  • HESPUL, France
  • Province of Ferrara
  • Climate Aliance Italy
  • Climate Alliance Austria
  • Climate Alliance - European Secretariat
