Area of activity/subject: Flash Floods
Summary of the project: Extreme rainfalls and flash floods are occurring evermore frequently and are resulting more often in loss of life and severe damage.
The consortium intends to provide a full process beginning with localized knowledge and ending with a comprehensive response approach that can be used to improve flash flood response in the EU. Specific products such as guidelines and tactical guidance documents will be created and tested in specifically developed trainings and exercises. ToR for flash flood response experts will be designed leading to the integration of flash flood response experts within the UCPM experts pool.
