/ SO 2.2
Strategic development of flood management
The project will contribute to increase knowledge about floods in the areas involved. Local authorities and emergency services will improve their flood risk management, while people will learn how to behave in case of flood hazards. This will help to reduce the human and socio-economic losses caused by floodings.

- Local, regional and national public authorities and related entities
- Emergency services and coast guard centres
In the last decades flooding frequency has increased along the Adriatic coasts and is expected to further do so in the next 50 to 100 years. This is a tangible effect of climate change that local communities experience. STREAM thus aims to reduce human and socio-economic losses in case of flood hazards, by improving flood risk management of local authorities and emergency services with a cross-border approach.
Partners will work together to develop risk monitoring tools and early warning procedures, with a combined bottom-up and top-down approach. Data sharing, exchange of practices and capacity building schemes will bring additional know-know to stakeholders in the project area.
Particularly, STREAM will set up a flood cadastre, flood risk maps, and a flood risk management plan. Another key element will be reaching the largest possible audience. To do so authorities will organize workshops, info-days and events, to improve the citizen's readiness and rescue operations in case of floodings. In fact raising their awareness in order to adopt correct behaviours is essential to minimize losses.
Once they are achieved, STREAM results can be transferred and put into practice in other costal regions facing similar problems.
KEY PROJECT NUMBERS
ZADAR COUNTY DEVELOPMENT AGENCY ZADRA NOVA
PUT MURVICE 14
ZADAR - Croatia
ZADRA NOVA will contribute to the creation of the flood risk and hazard maps, flood rescue management plan and the international flood platform to help minimize the devastation created by floods. The civil and emergency services in the Zadar County will receive modern equipment to help improve their intervention capacity and the personnel will be trained to use it. As part of the pilot action, the smart urban drainage system will be implemented in three locations in the Zadar area.

PUBLIC INSTITUTION DEVELOPMENT AGENCY OF LIKA-SENJ COUNTY - LIRA
LIRA will contribute to the STREAM project through holding a workshop/info-days and the education of stakeholders to improve the knowledge about flood risks. Furthermore, through the development of the Flood platform with access for all project partners/stakeholders and, ultimately, through implementing pilot activities over its territory, with the collaboration of other partners
Contact person: Maja Šimunić
Karlovac County will create a newly equipped & fully functional command centre in Karlovac to promptly manage and respond to the flooding emergencies in the county. They will establish an Integrated Flood Management System including standard operating procedures which will be tested through flood simulation scenarios and exercise of the civil protection operational forces. The standardisation of the intervention procedures will result in a strengthened capacity to better react to flood disasters
Contact person: Damir Hlaj
TOWN OF POREČ - PARENZO
In the past few years, parts of the Town of Poreč-Parenzo have been affected by high-intensity short periods of rainfall which caused floods with significant damage. By taking part in the project, the Town of Poreč-Parenzo will organize training drills and workshops for the personnel of the emergency and civil protection services. The town will also invest in newly equipping emergency services. Poreč will implement one pilot activity consisting of the development of a smart urban drainage system
Contact person: Dunja Babić
CITY OF VENICE
For decades, flood events and tides have been monitored and measured in Venice but now these more and more recurring phenomena are a concern of other Adriatic countries and show that cross-border management of coastal flooding is essential. The City of Venice decided to participate in the STREAM project particularly to improve its observational and forecasting system and alerting procedure and to further develop more effective emergency response plans to floods events.
Contact person: Isabella Marangoni
IUAV UNIVERSITY OF VENICE
The research Lab Planning Climate Change from the IUAV University will share its expertise in environmental planning and contribute to the development of the flood risk management plan with a focus on prevention, protection and response measures. IUAV will promote the integration of flooding risk management into the framework of the spatial planning system by holding courses addressed to professionals from the private and public sector.

PUBLIC INSTITUTION RERA SD FOR COORDINATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF SPLIT DALMATIA COUNTY
Participation in STREAM for PI RERA S.D will result in a deeper understanding of environmental protection and mitigation measures linked to flood risks and increased knowledge and competences in flood management. PI RERA S.D. will carry out a pilot project in Kaštela Bay and organize training sessions for the personnel of the Civil protection. It will also benefit from the creation of flood risk and hazard maps which will enhance their capacity to promptly react to flood hazard situations.
Contact person: Djeni Vukovic
UNIVERSITY OF ZADAR
UNIZD will develop the Flood risk and hazard maps for the cities of Poreč, Gospić, Zadar, Biograd na Moru, Split and Metković and the flood cadastre. UNIZD will conduct field research at chosen micro-location within Zadar city to generate pluvial and coastal flood models and develop a flood risk management plan and participate in the development of a joint FRMP with Italian partners. UNIZD will actively participate in the formation and meetings of the International management board.
