In view of the results of the preliminary flood risk assessment in the international Elbe river basin district, flood hazard and flood risk maps as well as subsequent flood risk management plans were prepared for a total of 9,905 km of rivers (393 areas with significant flood risk), among them 7,858 km (282 areas) in Germany and 2,047 km (111 areas) in the Czech Republic. No areas with a significant flood risk were determined in the Polish and in the Austrian parts of the international Elbe river basin district, which amount to about 0.8% of the total area of the Elbe river basin district.
