Floods Directive PFRA / APSFR

GIS Map Application Published 26 Jun 2014 Last modified 01 Mar 2015, 08:11 PM
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.
