Abstract

The NEDIES project is being conducted at Ispra by the Institute for the Protection and Security of the Citizen (IPSC) of the EC Joint Research Centre (JRC). The objective of the project is to support the Commission Services of the European Communities, Member State Authorities and EU organisations in their efforts to prevent and prepare for natural disasters and accidents, to manage their consequences. The project also aims to protect the citizens via the dissemination of targeted information on risk perception and awareness. A main NEDIES activity is to produce "lessons learnt" reports based on experience gained from past disasters. This report discusses lessons learnt from recent flood disasters. It is based on the contributions presented at a NEDIES meeting held at Ispra JRC on 27 and 28 September 2001.

This report is available online from the NEDIES website at: http://nedies.jrc.it/doc/Floods%20Report%20with%20logo.pdf
