As part of the LIFE IP IRIS project, measures to enhance flood protection and ecological quality are being implemented in various rivers across Austria. To assess the impacts of these measures, various indicators are selected. These indicators are then analyzed before and after the implementation of the measures and subsequently compared.
GE-RM – Water Development and Risk Management Concept
As a planning tool, GE-RM offers the opportunity to link flood protection and ecological interests together, thus creating added value for both humans and nature.
In 8 project areas, individual GE-RM measures are implemented as pilot projects. These measures arise from the long-term action concepts of the pilot regions. They are an important initial step in achieving the objectives of flood protection and aquatic ecology, paving the way for further actions in the future.
