Тhe water management and the flood protection measures have direct impacts on the riparian ecosystems and their biodiversity. Today the floodplain forests are almost extinct in Bulgaria and the most of river beds are considerably affected by the human activities. Therefore BBF has initiated a project for survey and dissemination of sustainable flood prevention and protection of river ecosystems.
The present website aims to link the topics of river conservation and flood prevention. Here you can find information about the riparian habitat surveys, case studies with good and bad practices for managing the river beds. Our intention is to publish here also the contemporary European approaches and legislative documents for the flood risk management.
