The loss of floodplains in Europe has not been assessed using a uniform Europe wide approach, but those studies that have been carried out suggests it is considerable. An overview of floodplain loss in Europe was presented in EEA, 2016. Depending on the river, 70-100% of the floodplain had been lost.  Of the rivers shown, the best preserved floodplains were the Danube Delta and the Middle Ebro River in Spain. The worst were the Tisza, Seine, Rhine and Meuse Rivers where close to 100% of the natural floodplain area had been lost.
