The floods directive: lessons from Germany for effective implementation


This pamphlet presents two case studies of flooding in Germany which were used to identify four main recommendations: (i) decisions at the catchment scale should be discussed with local stakeholders at sub-catchment levels; (ii) all stakeholders should be encouraged to participate; (iii) methods to improve this dialogue, such as workshops aimed at developing solutions, should be included; (iv) communication is key to effective flood risk management plans.
