    Cross-border cooperation: Flood risk management in the Elbe river basin

    01/10/2011This video takes you on a discovery of the ELLA+LABEL project, a cooperation initiative launched in 2003, with support from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), between the different countries of the Elbe River basin, with the aim of reducing flood risks. The project came about in the wake of the massive floods in 2002 which caused more than 100 deaths and resulted in some €12 billion of damages. Since then, the Central European countries affected by these floods have undertaken widespread cooperation in a bid to ensure that floods of such magnitude never happen again. The prevention mechanisms introduced have also resulted in the creation and development of many SMEs.
