Modelling the Danube River’s floodplains to update flood hazard and risk maps

Growing development along the Danube River in recent years means increasing damage to industries and cities in alongside it in the event of flooding. To help Slovakia improve flood management, we modelled current flood risks to urban areas along the river that are currently protected by dikes. This information was used to create flood hazard and risk maps of the Danube River, which were also included in the Europe-wide Danube Atlas.
