IPA FLOODS

The Programme for Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Floods in the Western Balkans and Turkey

Floods account for the major share of natural disasters in the Western Balkans and Turkey. The often disastrous trans-boundary effects of extreme flooding events on lives, properties and economic productivity in the region emphasize the need for improved measures for coordinated preparedness for response by neighbouring countries, including through cooperation with the Union Civil Protection Mechanism, and integrated flood risk management – encompassing prevention – as approached at EU level.
The Conclusions issued from the International Donors Conference for Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina convened on May 2014 highlighted the necessity to implement flood prevention and flood risk management in line with the EU Floods Directive, cooperate regionally for river basin management and develop civil protection mechanisms.
The Programme for Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Floods in the Western Balkans and Turkey (“The Programme” or “IPA FLOODS“) – funded by the European Commission,DG ECHO through the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) – is intended to increase Beneficiaries’ capacity to ensure proper flood risk management at national, regional and EU levels… find out more here
