Better prepared for the next extreme flood event
With the EMfloodResilience project we focus on becoming better prepared for the next extreme flood event and thereby prevent future loss of life and socio-economic damage. We need to know how rivers and streams react to heavy precipitation, what parameters control or influence this and what it means for specific geographical areas. The project helps develop or improve products that the authorities and water managers in the Euregion have a great and urgent need for, in order to limit the impact in the future, as in 2021. This project is co-financed by Interreg EMR, a European Union funding programme.
The EMfloodResilience project is being carried out within the context of Interreg V-A Euregio MeuseRhine and is 90% funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
The second work package focuses on how extreme precipitation leads to extreme discharges. For that reason it is of great importance to know how streams and rivers react to precipitation.
In work package four, based on the experiences in 2021, the effects of floating debris will be mapped out and the behaviour of floating debris will be calculated with an experimental model.
