‘Informatie-uitwisseling bij hoogwater, een Europese aanpak’

Van 13 t/m 15 mei 2008 vindt in Amsterdam de internationale slotconferentie plaats van het NOAH-project, met als thema ‘Informatie-uitwisseling bij dreigende overstromingen in Europa’.

Het NOAH-project ging in 2004 van start om de Europese samenwerking en informatie-uitwisseling bij dreigende overstromingen te verbeteren. Dit heeft geresulteerd in de bouw van een geavanceerd, internationaal bruikbaar hoogwater-informatiesysteem, FLIWAS (FLood Information & Warning System). Het systeem wordt in de projectperiode geïmplementeerd in pilotregio’s in Nederland, Duitsland en Ierland. Inmiddels hebben ook andere regio’s en een aantal Oost-Europese landen belangstelling getoond voor het gebruik van FLIWAS.
Voor de Taskforce Management Overstromingen is de ontwikkeling en implementatie van FLIWAS een belangrijk project als voorbereiding op de landelijke oefenweek ‘Waterproef’ in november 2008.
Het NOAH-project is ondergebracht bij de Stichting Toegepast Onderzoek Waterbeheer (STOWA) in Utrecht en wordt mede gefinancierd vanuit het Interreg IIIb programma van de Europese Unie.
