RAINMAN presents policy oriented recommendations to the CIS Working Group on Floods in Helsinki
Two representatives of the RAINMAN project had the privilege to give a presentation on "Heavy Rain Risk Management in Central Europe" at the 26th Meeting of the CIS Working Group on Floods (WGF) in Helsinki on October 18th.
Peter Heiland (INFRASTRUKTUR & UMWELT, on behalf of LfULG) and Cornelia Jöbstl (Office of the Styrian Government) presented the project and an outlook on the project results. They explained the activities carried out within the framework of the project and in the pilot activities using the example of the Graz pilot action.
One focus of the presentation was on the integration of pluvial flood risk management into flood risk management plans according the EU Floods Directive. Policy oriented recommendations and conclusions were presented, which the RAINMAN consortium developed based on the findings on heavy rain risk management collected within the framework of the RAINMAN project.
The conclusions and recommendations for pluvial flood risk management in flood risk management plans cover different aspects:
- administrative / process-oriented aspects of the integration of pluvial and fluvial flood risk management as well as
- technical aspects of heavy rain risk assessment and mapping.
The presented contents were discussed with the CIS Working Group on Floods and will be further developed by the RAINMAN partnership considering the results of this discussion.
