Summary
The project between four Dutch and German partners builds upon a transnational co-operation agreement in the field of flood prevention signed in 1997 by the Province of Gelderland, the Ministry of Transport and Water Management of the Netherlands, and the Ministry of Environment of the Land of Northrhine-Westfalia. FAR (Extreme floods and flood protection along the Rhine) follows up a number of IRMA-funded studies. The geographical scope of the project is the section of the Rhine running from Andernach (Germany) to the centre of the Netherlands (around Arnhem). The project’s objective is to strengthen transnational co-operation between the aforementioned regions in the field of flood protection mainly by increasing the technical knowledge on the occurrence and behaviour of extreme floods in the area, as well as examining the effectiveness of proposed flood protection measures and their influence downstream. It will develop tools and techniques for evaluation of flood risk and encourage a transfer of knowledge to similar catchment areas across the NWE. This will potentially be followed up by the development of an effective transnational flood protection strategy.
