The ICPER Action Plan for the Elbe River Flood Protection is an important tool for the international and national management of flood risks on the Elbe River watercourse. This plan, among other, helped to draw conclusions of the August 2002 flood so that they could be transferred into specific schemes. The evaluation of the period between 2003 and 2005 contained
- the analysis of flood risks,
- the flood warning and forecasting system, and
- the measures to improve the retention effect of the technical flood protection measures
Significant results were achieved – in other words, there was an advancement at the strategic level. The involvement of NGOs and the solving of relevant research projects at the European and national levels definitively contributed to the transparency of each scheme and to the integration of the current state of knowledge. The First Report on the Meeting the Objectives of the Action Plan for the Elbe River Flood Protection contains results that were accomplished in the period of three previous years.
The documentation is available in electronic form and on paper, printed in a Czech-German language version.
