Urgent need for action.
People have settled near rivers and coasts for thousands of years. Over the past few centuries river courses have been straightened and constricted, flood plains reclaimed and built on, and forests cut down. The consequences of these human interventions are climate change and an increasing number of environmental disasters. Floods, formerly once-in-a-century events, are occurring more and more frequently.
Experts are agreed that urgent action is needed: flood damage already tops the European loss statistics. Some of the losses are foreseeable and can be prevented by flood protection measures matched to local requirements. Flood protection and prevention are therefore among the most urgent tasks facing the local communities concerned.
