he project SUFRI aspires an improvement of flood risk management in case of disaster flood especially in respect of non-structural measures. Flood analyses have shown that structural measures of flood protection are limited applicable, especially in urban areas, and that absolute protection is not feasible. As flood protection and management are major tasks and of high public interest transnational strategies are needed to implement sustainable flood risk management, aiming for advanced warning systems, vulnerability analysis, and risk communication to optimize the disaster control management. To achieve this goal six project partners from four European countries (Austria, Germany, Italy and Spain) are working within the ERA-Net CRUE initiative for the period of 2009 - 2011.
