Flood risk management plans explain the risk of flooding from rivers, the sea, surface water, groundwater and reservoirs. FRMPs set out how risk management authorities will work with communities to manage flood risk over the next 6 years.
Each EU member country must produce FRMPs as set out in the EU Floods Directive 2007. Each FRMP covers a specific area called a river basin district (RBD). Use the map to find your river basin district.
Working with river basin management plans (RBMPs) and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive
RBMPs provide a framework for achieving an improved and sustainable water environment for each RBD. RBMPs and FRMPs provide a joint and integrated approach to catchment planning for water.
Working together to achieve the objectives and measures in the plans will help achieve benefits to human health and wellbeing, economic prosperity and the natural environment.
See the River basin management plans 2015.
There are strong links between RBMPs and the UK’s Marine Strategy which implements the Marine Strategy Framework Directive. Measures in the RBMPs will contribute to achieving Good Environmental Status in the UK seas.
