The Floods Directive (EC 2007c) seeks to improve the international cooperation in between regions and member states using a structured three-step approach to floods risk management:

1.         Based on available or easy derivable information, a preliminary flood risk assessment (PFRA) is made using information from past floods and their impacts, hydrological modelling and of available projections (including climate change scenarios) indicating potential future flood risks. In principle all types of floods are taken into account, including but not limited to fluvial, coastal, pluvial, and groundwater floods. Based on this PFRA a selection of areas with potential significant flood risk (APSFR) is made where more in depth analyses are carried out.
