Flood risk management strategies for Moldova
As part of the Moldova Flood Protection Project, we mapped hazards and developed strategies to help reduce and manage flood risk in Moldova.
Moldova’s economy, population, and environment is vulnerable to flooding and climate change is expected to increase flood risk. The Moldova Flood Protection Project puts in place measures to reduce and manage the flood risk at a national level. Our team was part of a consortium that identified programmes of flood management measures for the short (2014 to 2020), medium (2021 to 2025) and long (2026 to 2035) terms. Our expertise contributed to the flood risk assessment and flood mapping, dam break assessments, development of flood risk management objectives, and capacity building of flood risk staff in the country.
