On December 5-7 2017, the transboundary training workshop on “Governance and Technology for Flood Risk Reduction: Linking early warning to emergency management in the Sava River Basin” was held in Zagreb, Croatia.

The workshop was organised by the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe, in collaboration with the International Sava River Basin Commission (ISRBC) and with the technical support provided by the Deltares, the Royal Haskoning DHV from the Netherlands, the CIMA Research Foundation and Instituto Superiore Mario Boella (ISMB) from Italy.

About seventy participants of the workshop included policy and decision makers at national and international level, as well as experts, from institutions and organizations from governmental and non-governmental sectors from the Sava River Basin, working in the fields of integrated flood risk management, flood forecasting and flood emergency responces. Representatives from the Drin River Basin also participated.

The aim of the workshop was to test the overall capacity of the participants to achieve an effective flood risk reduction for the entire Sava basin, on different levels, applied to both scales (from local to national and transboundary levels) and time levels l (in terms of flood occurrences and frequencies). This was achived through the workshop which was highly participatory, involving group work on specific topics, as well as discussions.

The workshop demonstrated capabilities of Sava FFWS and I-REACT systems including an in-field drill, carried out by the I-REACT project team with the contribution of the Civil Protection of Croatia.
