Best Practices on Flood Prevention, Protection and Mitigation
The document at hand concerns the “best practice document”, which is an update of the United Nations and Economic Commission for Europe (UN/ECE) Guidelines on Sustainable flood prevention (2000). It is a living document that will need continuous input and improve-ments as application and experience build up in all countries of the European Union and be-yond. We agree, however, that this document will be made publicity available in its current form in order to present it to a wider public. The “best practice document” consists of three parts. In part I the more basic principles and approached are described. Part II concerns how to translate and implement the principles and approaches. The conclusions are drawn in part III.
