Implementation of flood risk management measures into spatial plans and policies



Implementation of flood risk management measures into spatial plans and policies



River Research and Applications 20(3): 255-267



Floods and risk in river basins can only effectively be reduced if, in addition to technical measures, spatial planning regulates land use in flood-prone areas. The development of new settlements and industry has to be kept out of the main risk zones. Furthermore detention areas as well as room for river functions must be safeguarded in a long-term perspective.
