Roomfortheriver - Project Roomfortheriver final CRUE ERA-NET report
The link refers to the project Roomfortheriver extended abstract.
The aim of this project was to examine the relative efficiency of non-structural flood mitigation measures. In particular measures which realise the non-structural flood risk mitigation concepts ‘retain the water in the catchment’ and ‘room for the river’ were to be evaluated: Land use change, local retention measures in the landscape through micro ponds and Flood retention along the main stream by providing inundation area.
Three case study areas were selected in the Rambla del Poyo (Spain), Kamp catchment (Austria) and Upper Iller catchment (Austria/Germany), with different climate (semiarid, humid and alpine respectively), hydrological and hydraulic characteristics.
