One of the effects of the climate change is a higher flood risk, which requires a reinforcement of water management strategies and infrastructures.
Our projects SafeFlood, ClimaAdapt and Secure Areas are working on reduction of flood risk in the areas of Latgale and Zemgale regions (LV) bathed by the river Daugava, as well as in Utena County (LT), richly covered with beautiful lakes and rivers. Thanks to these projects a new protective and emergency equipment has been obtained to serve as a flood protection and fighting system, decreasing the risk in many settlements affected by flood emergencies.
The projects have also organised special trainings for the rescue teams as well as supported the creation of common strategies and organisation of awareness campaigns to make the regions more prepared for flood emergencies, climate changes and decrease subsequent damage and environmental pollution.
