Assessing flood risk: new foresight tool at cutting-edge of mitigation efforts

The JRC has developed a new forecasting tool to help disaster responders prevent the worst impacts of floods.

The first of its kind in operation, the tool adds near real-time impact assessments to existing forecasts, allowing authorities to prepare and focus resources well ahead of potential floods.

Following extensive testing, it has now been integrated into the Copernicus European Flood Awareness System (EFAS).

The EFAS already plays an important role as an early warning flood forecast service. By providing added value information to its users, such as predictions up to 10 days ahead for Europe’s major rivers, it helps countries to take action ahead of time.

However, predicting where floods are likely to happen is only part of the picture.
