FLOODMED: Monitoring, Forecasting and Best Practices for Flood Mitigation and Prevention in the CADSES Region
(INTERREG III B CADSES Inter-regional Cooperation Program)

altClient:  European Union Delegation to the Republic of Serbia
Expert Team: Dr. Dejan Divac, CE; Dr. Marina Babić Mladenović, CE; Dr. Stevan Prohaska, CE; Dr. Nikola Milivojević, ME; Vladimir Milivojević, ME; Zoran Simić, CE; and Zoran Dubajić, EE

This two-year project was supported by the EU Delegation to the Republic of Serbia via the INTERREG III B CADSES Program. It was launched in 2006 and completed in 2008. Project participants included 13 partners from nine different countries.

 

FLOODMED brought together scientists and public servants in developing a scalable system of operational tools to support integrated water and sustainable flood risk management. Transnational methodologies and models were developed and implemented for flood estimation and forecasting at project sites, leading up to the proposal of flood mitigation measures and real-time warning systems.  

Hydrometeorological monitoring and flood forecasting are indispensable tools in the prevention and mitigation of hydrologic threats and in ensuring civil defense. However, the implementation of a sustainable flood protection plan requires additional activities related to agricultural, forest and land use management in flood-prone areas. Respective methodologies were developed in a transnational context, transcending local approaches.

Project partners were carefully selected to represent stakeholders in target areas and to promote stronger links between the scientific community and the authorities responsible for flood protection. The project brought together regional authorities and leading research institutes from experienced EU member states and from recent EU member states, as well as non-member states which are part of the CADSES region.

Project partners:

  1. National Technical University of Greece, Athens, Greece
  2. Prefecture of Chania, Greece
  3. Technical University of Crete, Chania, Greece
  4. Water Research Institute (IRSA), Bari, Italy
  5. Research Institute for Geo-Hydrological Protection (IRPI-CNR), Perugia, Italy
  6. Umbria Region, Department of Territorial Politics and Infrastructures, Perugia, Italy
  7. Institute of Meteorology and Water Management (IMGW), Wroclaw, Poland
  8. VITUKI Environmental Protection and Water Resources Research Institute, Budapest, Hungary
  9. Center for Environmental Research (UFZ), Leipzig, Germany
  10. Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute (SHMU), Bratislava, Slovakia
  11. University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy (UACEG), Sofia, Bulgaria
  12. National Institute of Hydrology and Water Management (INHGA), Bucharest, Romania
  13. Jaroslav Černi Institute for the Development of Water Resources (JCERNI), Belgrade, Serbia

The goal of the project was to apply general methodologies and integrated strategies in the implementation of flood prevention and mitigation. These were tested at pilot sites, experiences were exchanged, and suitable tools were developed for local authorities within the CADSES region responsible for water management and planning.

JCI experts, along with their colleagues from other partner institutions, were actively involved in the project. Project outcomes include upgraded mathematical model parameters, enhanced and standardized measured data processing and archiving, a web interface for a GIS developed for and synchronized with local user needs, and staff training in monitoring network standards and long-term management planning.
