NEW FLOOD EARLY WARNING SYSTEM IN THE INTERNATIONAL DEMARCATION

NEW FLOOD EARLY WARNING SYSTEM IN THE INTERNATIONAL DEMARCATION

On 5 and 6 July 2018, a meeting on flood risk management was held in Oporto at the headquarters of the Ordem dos Engenheiros Região Norte in collaboration with the other partner involved in this action, APA-ARH Norte.

Relevant aspects for the homogenization of the early warning system were discussed, in coordination with the Portuguese side and the rest of the international Hispanic-Portuguese basins.

These are the first steps that will be taken to develop a communications protocol focused on competent authorities, civil protection and citizenship. This action is framed within activity 3 “New early warning system for floods in the international demarcation” within the Risc_ML Project.
