Directive for the assessment and management of floods risk 2007/60/EEC

On 18 January 2006 the Commission adopted its proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on the assessment and management of floods risk.

On 25/04/2007 the European Parliament adopted a compromise package agreed with the Council which in essence means the Directive is agreed. Formal adoption is expected later in 2007 by the Council. The new "Directive on the assessment and management of flood risks" has been strengthened as regards the requirements on international cooperation in shared river basins and streamlined as regards the preliminary flood risk assessment and mapping and is concerned. More emphasis is placed on the role of flood plains and sustainable land use practices. Climate change adaptation will be considered in the first implementation cycle, starting in 2011 with the preliminary flood risk assessment.

Additional information for the process of development and approval of the Directive, as well as other key documents of the European Commision on this topic are available at:
