This report summarises the research on flood risk governance conducted in Poland at the national and case study level of analysis; including the case studies of Poznań County, Słubice City and the City of Wrocław. The national Flood Risk Governance Arrangement in Poland is characterised by rather stable arrangement of actors, rules, resources and discourses delivering a hydro-technical approach to Flood Risk Management. The report consists of explanation and evaluation of this approach. Good practices, options for improvement and recommendations are also provided.

This report is a deliverable of the EU 7th Framework Project STAR-FLOOD, which focuses on flood risk governance. The project investigates strategies for dealing with flood risks in 18 vulnerable urban regions in six European countries: England in the UK, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Poland and Sweden. The project assesses flood risk governance arrangements from a combined public administration and legal perspective, with the aim of making European regions more resilient to flood risks.
