The project and the conference are part-financed by the EU in the framework of the
European Regional Development Fund under the CENTRAL EUROPE programme.
Considering increasing risks of heavy rain events, authorities
at all levels must act - especially local authorities. To do so,
they should know how to analyse the hazards of heavy rain
events and reduce risks accordingly. Partners from six coun-
tries have jointly developed and tested tools and methods for
this purpose. They will be available online as a „RAINMAN
toolbox“ from May 2020.
At the conference you can learn about the RAINMAN toolbox
and its contents. Experiences from exemplary applications will
be presented and discussed with the participants. The target
group are participants from municipalities, science and politics.
The project is part-financed by the European Regional Devel-
opment Fund within the framework of the CENTRAL EUROPE
programme.
