Flood Issues - Tisza River Basin (FLOODsite)

Pilot study in the Tisza River Basin to test various methodologies from other FLOODsite tasks in order to develop sustainable flood management strategies for the pilot study area. The pilot study covered a 125 km2 area along the right bank of the River Tisza, downstream the city of Szolnok in Hungary.

The pilot study focused on the following issues:

Developing precautionary and sustainable flood management strategies for the river basin, based on the investigation and analysis of previous floods;

Fostering international co-operation especially in the fields of monitoring, data exchange and methods of flood forecasting and warning; and

Applying general vulnerability analysis techniques (using flood hazard mapping) developed by other FLOODsite tasks, to identify the effectiveness of flood management strategies.
