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.

GIS Map Application Floods Directive viewer
What is on this Floods Directive map? River Basin Districts (RBDs) are the main units for the management of river basins and have been delineated by Member States under Article 3 of the Water Framework Directive (WFD). For the Floods Directive (, Member States were given the choice to use either the WFD River Basin Districts, or to designate other Units of Management (UoM) for specific river basins or stretches of coastal areas under article 3 of that Directive. For the majority of RBDs, EU Member States used the same ones as for the WFD. The geographic area of some RBDs span more than one country (such as the Danube) and these are known as International RBDs. Others (the minority) are contained completely within a country and are known as National RBDs.
