In 2007, with the Floods Directive (EC 2007c), legislation came into force to reduce the risk of adverse consequences from flooding, especially for human health and life, the environment, cultural heritage, economic activity and infrastructure. The Floods Directive refers explicitly to the WFD for its contribution to mitigate the effects of floods. However, reducing the risk of floods is not one of the principal objectives of the WFD, nor does it take into account the future changes in the risk of flooding as a result of climate change.
