The flood events of recent years in Europe have shown that flooding can harm Life and health, Environment, Assets and property and The existence of companies (or business).
For the future, climate scientists predict an increase in the number and intensity of extreme weather events that can lead to flooding. Flood damage can be effectively limited by preventive and defensive measures learnt from experience.
For this reason, CFPA Europe wishes to support the efforts of European countries on increased flood protection with practical advice and recommendations which are based on best practice.
Because of the diversity of local situations and threats, it is not possible, to develop a universal protection plan for each individual circumstances.
Any objective-specific protection plan should therefore always be coordinated with the local authority and, if necessary, with the relevant insurer.
