Floods and droughts impact sustainable development and social conditions. To reduce the risks of extreme hydrologic events, protection capacities and resources should be upgraded and synchronized with science and technology advances on an ongoing basis. Proper training of all flood and drought protection participants is of primary importance. The development of appropriate procedures and mathematical models, and the use of modern equipment to monitor relevant parameters, can considerably mitigate the adverse effects of extreme events.

Two years ago, the Serbian Ministry of Science and Technological Development commissioned JCI to undertake a scientific research project (ТР-22005) with the goal of developing methods and procedures for the assessment of extreme hydro-meteorological events: floods and droughts. In addition to JCI, project participants included:

  • The School of Agriculture, University of Belgrade;
  • The School of Civil Engineering and Architecture, University of Niš; and
  • The School of Mining and Geology, University of Belgrade.

Project Objectives

  • Scientific (theoretical) contribution to multi-dimensional statistical assessments of floods and droughts, and the development of a procedure for the assessment of coinciding high flows on major rivers and their tributaries;
  • Development of numerical procedures for the identification of historic flood and drought events; and
  • The establishment of a pilot field where soil properties relevant to agricultural production will be monitored.


Project Outcomes

  • Identification of historic flood and drought events in Serbia;
  • A methodology for multi-dimensional definition of flood return periods for complex river systems;
  • A methodology for the identification of multi-dimensional coinciding flood waves on the Danube, Tisa and Sava rivers;
  • A detailed methodology for assessing the probability of historic flood and drought events recurring during the same calendar year;
  • A detailed soil moisture balance model, to determine the exact time of the beginning and end of crop water stress periods; and
  • The establishment of a pilot field for soil moisture regime monitoring.
