Description

This project is designed to assist in the process of bringing Serbia into line with the European Directive on the Assessment and Management of Flood Risks.

Eptisa is preparing the set of maps based on GIS technologies in order to facilitate their integration into the national Water Management Information System, which was also created by a consortium led by Eptisa as part of another EU-financed project. The maps of the flood prone areas will become part of the urban and spatial plans, working as a management tool for both protection and urban planning.
