GIS Map Application Floods Directive PFRA / APSFR
Member States shall for each of their units of management (UOM) identify those areas for which they conclude that a potential significant flood risk exists or might be considered likely to occur (Article 5 of the Floods Directive). The Areas of Potentially Significant Flood Risk (APSFR) can be designated as areas (polygons), lines or points. Prior to the identification of APSFRs, Member States have undertaken a Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment (PFRA) based on available or readily derivable information (Article 4 of the Floods Directive) of the floods which have occurred in the past and of the potential adverse consequences of future floods. The map include information made available by MSs up until May 2014.

Highlight Flood risk in Europe: the long-term outlook
Floods in Central Europe have caused deaths and widespread property damage across parts of the Czech Republic, Germany and Austria. Such events are likely to increase in Europe for several reasons including climate change, according to recent assessments from the European Environment Agency (EEA).

Press Release Europe must adapt to stay ahead of a changing climate
As Europe’s climate warms, wine producers in Europe may need to change the type of grapes they cultivate or the location of vineyards, even moving production to other areas in some cases. This is just one example of how Europe’s economy and society need to adapt to climate change, as examined in a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA).

Figure Potential physical, cultural and social impact of climate change
(Physical) Combined potential impacts of changes in inundation heights of a 100 year river flood event and a sea level rise adjusted 100 year coastal storm surge event and changes in flash flood potential on settlements, major roads, railways, airports, harbours, thermal power stations and refineries. (Social) Combined potential impacts of changes in inundation heights of a 100 year river flood event and a sea level rise adjusted 100 year coastal storm surge event as well as changes in flash flood potential and summer heat on population. (Cultural) Combined potential impacts of changes in inundation heights of a 100 year river flood event and a sea level rise adjusted 100 year coastal storm surge event on registered World Heritage sites and museums.
