Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


The project aims at the integration of the water management activities in the area of the largest rivers (Drava and Mur), which are shared by two EU states (Austria and Slovenia), according to two EU Directives: Water Framework Directive (WFD Water Framework Directive) and Flood Directive (Directive Flood FD). The project established common standards for the handling of floods and the management of sediments. This was achieved through intensive cooperation and exchange of experiences.

The DRA-MUR-CI project activities covered coherent cross-border development and support measures for the protection of humans and the environment against natural disasters and for improving the living environment of people, flora and fauna. Six work-packages enforced the establishment of information-based technology for protection measures against flooding, the exchange of experience at professional level and proved the concept in pilot projects.

The total value of this four year project was 3.5 million €. The project was co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund of the European Union.

The project focused on in-depth research and development in the field of water management and cross-border cooperation, enforcing the understanding of flooding, flood risk and the control of sediments. Based on the analysis of scientific data the system of warning and informing citizens, civil protection shall be improved and bilateral warning and action plans upgraded. The regulation of rivers and flood protection measures aimed at re-evaluating the nature and the living environment of both rivers and the facilitation of integrated action in the form of pilot projects on the rivers Drava and Mur.
