VISFRIM

Vipava/Vipacco and Other Transboundary River Basins Flood Risk Management
Priority Axis 3

Protecting and promoting natural and cultural resources

Specific Objective: 
OS 3.3.
Investment Priority: 
PI 6f
Typology: 
Strategic
Overall Objective of the Project: 

The VISFRIM project aims to efficiently manage hydraulic risk in cross-border basins by developing methodologies and technological tools for the implementation of existing flood risk management plans and their forthcoming update, as required by the Floods Directive 2007/60/EC by 2021.

Project summary: 

The programme area is vulnerable to floods and this trend is tragically set to increase due to the ongoing intense urbanisation process and climate change. The VISFRIM project aims to achieve efficient management of hydraulic risk in cross-border basins, through the development of methods and technological tools for the implementation of existing Flood Risk Management Plans (PGRA) and their forthcoming update (2021). The project will involve governmental bodies and local authorities in developing joint measures and actions in the international basins of the Isonzo and Vipacco rivers and in the interregional basin of the Lemene River. They will share data and knowledge, jointly develop models for flood simulation and identify mitigation measures to be implemented in the territory, cost and benefit assessed in advance using specific IT procedures designed during the project. In particular, green IT tools will be implemented, i.e. technologies capable of promoting the active participation of citizens in environmental monitoring, and structural works will be implemented on a small scale and with low environmental impact.

Main results: 

1. Local communities more resilient to floods
The project involves developing green technologies, systems capable of promoting the conservation and protection of the natural environment, such as web platforms for the collection and presentation of a range of information on cross-border river basins. This will help increase mutual trust between different competent authorities, improve land monitoring and promote greater dissemination of environmental data, making communities within the system less vulnerable and more aware of existing risks.
2. Increased land security
The sharing of information through the project's green technologies will allow us to develop more reliable modelling tools, supported by a larger and more distributed data set in the territory. Moreover, the resulting improved knowledge framework will lead decision makers to identify the most effective solutions (structural and non-structural) to be implemented in the territory to mitigate the hydraulic risk within the entire catchment area.

Objectives and Activities

The project includes several activities aimed at supporting flood risk management in selected cross-border case studies. Specifically, shared hazard maps and hydraulic risk maps will be drawn up through the use of accurate, jointly developed modelling tools. This will allow common management objectives to be established and potential measures to achieve them to be implemented.
