Reliable hydrologic data provides the basis for a dependable flood forecasting system in the Danube Basin. While it is important to have a proper emergency plan in the countries most afflicted by the flood risk, it is still more important to have a sound forecasting system that can increase the preparation time and therefore save human lives and social estate. A forecasting system that is based on the cooperation between the Danube Basin countries is the main objective of DAREFFORT project.




The project aims to explore the current status of the national forecasting abilities wherefrom the partners and the stakeholders could derive the common goals in order to develop the existing system in an inclusive way, therefore improve the forecasting system of the area.
