Good Practice Information

To elaborate a cross border flood risk management plan for the downstream (cross border) part of the Rur we, together with Wasserverband Eifel Rur asked a third party to do this for both sides of the border. It is a Dutch company with an office in Germany and experience in both countries.
The result will be a global draft flood risk management plan which describes results of all phases of the Flood-Directive and gives an overview of the involved organizations on both sides of the border. The report will be delivered in the German and Dutch language and has an English summary.
Beneficiaries:
- one common result on both sides of the border
- cost reduction.
