What works and what is still missing when implementing Flood Risk Management programmes and projects? Which elements are important and how does it work in practice? Answers to those questions come in many varieties, but what elements and trends are in fact interchangeable across programs and projects in Europe and beyond? During this special session the Dutch Flood Protection Programme (DFPP) instead of “High water protection programme”, the UK Environment Agency and the French BRGM make a first start by presenting cases from their respective countries, and share their analysis and best practices. Specifically focusing on the relation between national vs. local needs, stakeholder engagement, spatial integration, and financing, this special session aims to find interchangeable elements that help enhance EU-FRM programs and projects. After the presentation the participants are invited to actively participate in round table discussions and share their views and best practices on statements related to the analysis. The output should also make clear what we can learn from each other now, and explore further opportunities to learn from each other in future.

Main topics

Interesting themes based on discussion and experience

  1. Communication on Flood Risk (national and local level)
    Risk approach, prevention, involvement of stakeholders
  2. Finances
    How is finance dispersed across stakeholders (water authorities, municipality, provincial, private). Co-financing, co-producing
  3. Stakeholder engagement
    How and to what extent are stakeholders involved in the projects? Important to realize first, is how the (official) governance arrangement is shaped, and what the public and shared responsibilities are. The relation between spatial planning/urban planning, co-production (Dutch: meekoppelkansen), engagement with public and collaboration between organizations (e.g. Between watersheds and responsible/associated organisations).
  4. Tension between program versus project
    Is there a collective understanding about how the individual project is associated with the collective? On a governance level, how is vertical and horizontal alignment of government planning and organisation shaped and being managed? Etc.
